At this year’s Google I/O conference the company announced, that they’re dropping the price of their most powerful smartphone – the Galaxy Nexus, down to just $349 – quite an attractive price for such a powerful device. The smartphone was selling at this price for about a week, after which it was removed from Google’s online store with the promise, that it would be back soon. The reason behind this act remains unknown so far, though there are three main options – that the device has been sold out because of its appealing price, Google are already carrying out the court’s order or they’re just working on a software update to work around the patent infringement.
This should be a concern for their users, though, as the company’s partners will keep on selling the device and the Google themselves have stated, that it would appear in their stores in a week or so. Google have already started spreading an update, in which the search function has been tweaked to only show results from the web, without displaying ones found in your device – a very useful Android feature. Still, though, users shouldn’t worry about this, as it won’t reflect on the Google Now service, which debuted with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean . B. A.
