In an unexpected turn of events, Samsung has been granted a temporary stay on the Samsung Galaxy Nexus injunction which allows the device to be sold until July 12th. Judge Lucy Koh issued the temporary stay as the courts awaits to hear “Apple’s response.” If you’re a bit confused, you’re not the only one. Details are still vague and it seems no one knows what Apple needs to respond about. The Samsung Galaxy Nexus is still listed as “coming soon” on Google Play, but we could see the device reappear on the store before the handset’s Android 4.1 update is in place which is expected to remove the infringing universal search capability from the handset.
Update: We’ve just heard that the Samsung Galaxy Nexus is now available on Google Play. While the handset can be purchased, the shipping estimate is listed at 1-2 weeks. It seems Google is still intent on having Android 4.1 installed on the Galaxy Nexus even though Samsung has been granted a temporary stay on the injunction.
