Galaxy Nexus sales ban to stay until further notice

Galaxy Nexus sales ban to stay until further notice

This week has been a bad one for the lawyers in charge of keeping Samsung's mobile products on the shelves as not only the Galaxy Tab 10.1 but the Galaxy Nexus have now had bids to end their preliminary sales ban in two separate Apple court cases. Apple is currently working on legal suits against Samsung in regards to alleged patent infringement and has won preliminary sales bans on both the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and the Galaxy Nexus in the USA until the court cases take place. In other words - good luck trying to find either device for sale in the USA until the cases are resolved.

Galaxy Nexus sales ban up in the air pending appeal

It appears that the case involving Apple and Google's Galaxy Nexus device (made by Samsung) has yielded a bit of a confusing set of circumstances. According to Foss Patents legal aficionado Florian Mueller and All Things D writer Ina Fried, we'll still need to wait on a ruling for the pre-ruling on if the Galaxy Nexus will continue to be able to be sold in the USA. The case at hand has Apple filing a suit against the Galaxy Nexus and has since this weekend had a sales ban enacted through the court against said phone until the court case can decide if the device truly does infringe upon Apple's patent for a '604 Siri-style quick search.

Android 4.1 Jelly Bean Review

Android 4.1 Jelly Bean Review

Google's newest version of its mobile operating system Android 4.1 Jelly Bean is what essentially equates to a fine tuning of the version that came immediately before it. Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich pushed the Google mobile OS world together, with Android 3.0 Honeycomb and Android 2.3 Gingerbread, made for tablets and smartphones respectively, making a single system that's made for all devices, regardless of their screen size.

Google Nexus lineup hits multiple partners in 2012

Google Nexus lineup hits multiple partners in 2012

The folks at Google may well be breaking its long-standing streak of working with one single partner for each new Nexus device starting this year. This tip comes from a person familiar with the matter speaking with the Wall Street Journal this week, they also noting that the seven "lead devices" they've produced in the past will not be evidence that they'll continue this strategy in the near future. This new strategy would have Google working with what we can expect would be more than just Samsung, HTC, and Motorola for their next software release code-named "Jellybean" in the latter half of 2012.

You want a Galaxy S III, not a Google Galaxy Nexus

Google wont be carrying the Galaxy S III, but it will have Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich - but the Galaxy Nexus has that software in the nude.
