Unlike with the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, the US Court of Appeals has temporarily lifted a ban on Galaxy Nexus sales issued late last week. The key word here is “temporarily,” as the ban is only suspended pending a response from Apple that would help the court decide whether or not to allow sales of the device until a final decision is reached in the patent infringement case against Samsung.
The stay on the ban was the result Samsung had hoped to achieve when appealing the temporary injunction on their Galaxy Tab 10.1, but the Court of Appeals did not see eye to eye with the Korean tech maker when it came to that device. Google and Samsung are already hard at work to restore sales of the Galaxy Nexus by way of a software patch that would remove infringing elements. The plan was to have the device back on sale next week regardless of the result of the appeals process.
