The saga surrounding the Samsung Galaxy Nexus continues. This device is at the center of a patent fight between Apple and Samsung -- the latest round has gone to Samsung, but the battle is far from over.
Recently, the Federal Judge in this case, Lucy Koh, made a preliminary ruling: she believes Apple's pre-trial evidence is strong enough that this company is likely to win when the two go to trial. She therefore blocked the Galaxy Nexus from being imported into the U.S. until the actual trial, which is scheduled for late this month.
Now, however, a federal appeals court has overturned that ruling, at least temporarily. Apple has until July 12 to make its arguement to the appeals court on why the ban needs to be re-instated.
At the time this article was written, the Galaxy Nexus was available from Sprint, Verizon, Best Buy, and Google Play.
The trial in patent-infringment lawsuit between Apple and Samsung is scheduled to start on July 30.
Apple vs. Android
While the Samsung Galaxy Nexus is the poster-child for this fight, the real battle is between Apple and Google... the maker of the iPhone really claims that the Android OS infringes on its patents. Google has responded by promising that the newly-announced Android OS 4.1 will be infringment free.
