Several rumors (here and here) are circulating that the Galaxy Nexus, despite the ban in place, will begin shipping to consumers again sometime in the coming week. According to the rumor, “Google confirmed to ABC News that the Galaxy Nexus had been pulled from its Google Play store as a result of the judge’s decision, but said it would begin selling the device again next week running the latest version of Android — Android 4.1, known as Jelly Bean. The updated version of Android would address the issues in dispute, Google said.”
Well, there you have it. Jelly Bean will be rushed to the market to save Google’s flagship smartphone device, the Galaxy Nexus. So, if you’re debating whether Google loves their products or not, here’s your answer. Looks like the relationship between Samsung and Google is strong. That also means that current owners will likely receive their software update too.
