It looks like the decision of U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh today to reject Samsung’s request to lift the injunction filed by Apple against the Galaxy Nexus is finally taking effect. That’s because the Galaxy Nexus is no longer available for purchase at the Google Play Store. We headed over to Google Play to check out the device and interestingly the device is now listed as “Coming Soon”. However, Google did not provide any reason for the disappearance. So, has Google finally complied with the preliminary injunction?
While that could be possible, it’s also important to note that there are other possible reasons as well. Maybe the device is out of stock, or maybe, just maybe, the rumored software patch that we previously reported is currently being deployed. Of course, unless we will hear something from Google and Samsung, let’s take it with a grain of salt. The Samsung Galaxy Nexus was first launched on Google Play in April this year. Just six days ago, the price of the device dropped to $349 off-contract from the store.
