Google promises software fix to get round the injunction


Last week Apple was granted an injunction against Samsung’s Galaxy Nexus superphone, effectively forcing Google to drop the handset from its online store.

However, Google developers have been drinking a lot of coffee and energy drinks, so a software workaround is on the way. Google told ABC News that it was forced to stop carrying the phone due to the injunction, but the fix should be ready as early as next week.

Apple’s infringement claim revolves around the unified search feature, basically a method of searching all content on the phone, from apps to songs.

Hardly surprising, since one of Apple’s prize patents is slide-to-unlock, something a two-year-old can master.
