So everyone thought the removal of the advanced Google search function form the Galaxy S3 was due to Apple’s patent but little did we know that Samsung had accidentally removed the advanced search function that allowed users to search contacts, apps and other on-device materials.
Many thought the removal of the feature was to protect itself from the Apple patent claims but the South Korean electronics giant Samsung said,
“Samsung will provide the correct software upgrade within the next few days.”
Overall, earlier this month Apple and Samsung have been at each other’s throats, where Apple won a preliminary ban on the Galaxy Tab 7.7, following a decision handed down at the Dusseldorf Higher Regional Court.
Things also went Samsung’s way earlier in the month as well when Apple was told by a UK judge that it had to publish ads o its UK website and in several major newspapers informing consumers that the South Korean firm did not copy the design of the iPad.
With a case that centres on how much Apple should pay Samsung, set to kick off at the end of the month, a US court is to be told that Samsung deleted emails that could have been relevant to one of its patent battles with Apple.
