Samsung has made an appeal to the US court for the ban of Galaxy Nexus for infringement of Apple’s patents as reported by Apple, but the court has declined its request for the same, as Samsung could not prove that it has not infringed the patents so the ban still exists in United States.
Though Samsung is dissatisfied with the decision of the court and made a statement – “We believe today’s ruling will ultimately reduce the availability of superior products to consumers in the United States. We will continue to pursue an appeal of the Galaxy Nexus preliminary injunction, which we filed on July 2 to the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.”
Samsung is also working with Google to closely see the whole matter, as one of the patents in question concerns Google’s unified search function. However, Google has put the device on sale with its Google Play store and has given the device a pre-order status, which could suggest that the company is optimistic about getting Apple’s ban overturned.
