After a U.S. judge ruled that Samsung’s Galaxy Nexus infringed on at least one Apple patent and was set for a preliminary injunction, Google listed the device as “Coming Soon” in the Google Play Store. The obvious explanation was that it had to do with the patent and now Google has come out and said that to ABC News. According to them, the Galaxy Nexus will begin shipping next week and will come pre-loaded with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean which will correct the offending issue and allow sales to continue.
Google had said that they had a fix in the works and it seems that it didn’t take too long to create. Keep in mind that this is for the GSM version of the Galaxy Nexus that is sold on the Google Play Store. Are any of you planning to snatch one up when they once again become available?
