Google Confirms Galaxy Nexus Pulled From Shelves Due To Injunction

In a non-surprising move, Google has confirmed to ABC News that the Galaxy Nexus was pulled off the market due to the recent injunction granted to Apple. For its part, Google said it would begin selling the Galaxy Nexus again next week with the latest Android ROM, Jelly bean, which addresses the issues in dispute.

Google had mentioned as of the most recent court decision that they were working on a fix for the “quick search box,” which is at the center of Apple's court case. As a reminder, the current argument rests on Google's GSM Galaxy Nexus models currently being sold through the Google Play store.

For its part, Samsung expressed their own frustration in reaction to the injunction and vowed to:

“…Continue to pursue an appeal of the Galaxy Nexus preliminary injunction…Meanwhile, we are also working closely with Google to resolve this matter, as the patent in question concerns Google's unified search function.”
