May be Apple is Jealous of Android’s Jelly bean Success!! They are suing google Instead Of Innovating!!! Google already won the first world api war against Oracle, this may be the cold war between Apple vs Google, Samsung!!
This time bad news for Android users!!! sale of an Android-based device made by Samsung has been banned in the United States by a federal judge because Apple put an injunction against Samsung that may see a ban on sales of the popular Galaxy Nexus phones,On Friday, Judge Lucy Koh barred the sale of Samsung’s Galaxy Nexus phone in the United States until a patent lawsuit between the Korean company and Apple is settled.
The complaint is very similar to the one Apple lodged against HTC, This one is particularly painful for Android users however as the Nexus represents Google’s premier development device, and the only one running Jelly Bean.
Samsung is ready to appeal so this isn’t over quite yet, but it doesn’t look good for Samsung at the moment.
The injunction on sales of the Galaxy Nexus is based on a patent relating to universal search on the phone, among three other patents, including slide to unlock, and word recommendations and auto correct. Google and Samsung are working on a software update, although the companies plan to argue in court that universal search on phones pre-dates Apple’s patent.
The software update will be rolled out to all Galaxy Nexus devices in the United States regardless or carrier, The Verge details. This will basically reduce the capabilities of the search bar on the home screen, limiting the results to just those from the Web. This would also mean that apps, emails, music, and so on will not appear in the results from the search bar, while voice search will be confined to Web results as well.
As the legal proceedings continue and the software update for the Galaxy Nexus is on the way, Google expects the Galaxy Nexus to go back on sale starting next week.
Google and Samsung, the manufacturer of the Galaxy Nexus Android smartphone, are working together on a software patch that will allow sales of the Google flagship smartphone to resume,
This action is prompted by Google’s pull of the Galaxy Nexus from theGoogle Play store after the phone was banned from sale due to an injunction filed by Apple.
So we have to wait and see what will happens next!!
