The Galaxy Nexus, released by Samsung in conjunction with Google in November of last year, had a legion of fans who loved the curved glass design that featured a gorgeous Super AMOLED display. If you happen to be one of those fans and have been waiting patiently for the next iteration then it looks like you are about to be in for a treat. Information has emerged about a product that has been given the code name "Superior", the model number GT-i9260 and could be the successor to the popular Galaxy Nexus.

Apple has been without relent in its pursuit of Google and Samsung, claiming patent infringements on a grand scale. Judge Lucy Koh last week dished out a ban on Galaxy Nexus sales to the Big G, and the web company duly obliged, removing the device from its Play Store. Earlier this week, the device returned, packing in Android Jelly Bean 4.1, a move which is said to amend any issues with regards to the claims Apple made in court, but having followed this Apple vs. Anybody debacle for quite a great deal of time, it should be of no surprise that the Cupertino company has not quite finished yet.
Scarcely a week after an injunction which abruptly ended the sales of Google's Galaxy Nexus, the Samsung-manufactured device has now reappeared on the web company's Play Store, and will resume shipping in a couple of weeks time.

The ongoing patent battle between Apple and Samsung has really come a long way and has slipped thoroughly into the wilderness.

If you’ve been following the patent war between Apple and Samsung closely, then you must be aware of the fact that a certain Cupertino based company is doing the best it can to scrape every Galaxy device off the shelf in the U.S., and fortunately or unfortunately, depending on which side of the fence you belong to, it is getting really lucky lately.
Although we haven't heard about it as much as we have in recent times, the ongoing patents wars between the world's top technology companies is bubbling away in the background, with Apple and Samsung still managing to find themselves at the front of it all. Continuing with the legal battle we have become familiar with over the last twelve months, Apple have found themselves on the positive end of an initial ruling across the pond.
