Google confirmed to ABC News that it will resume sales of the Galaxy Nexus starting next week. The device was pulled from the Google Play Store's virtual store shelves earlier this week due to a judicial ruling related to patent lawsuits between Samsung and Apple. Google told ABC News that the Galaxy Nexus will be updated to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and the update will address the issue behind the sales ban. The patent in question relates to how the Google search bar parses through multiple applications on Android phones at the same time. Apple has a patent for this type of search related to its Siri service.

Apple, I dedicate this song to thee...

It's by REEL BIG FISH, "Another F.U. Song".

An 'update' that cripples the phone's functionality....and they are bundling that together with Jelly Bean so that people will have to accept it if they want the newest Android.

But I don't blame Google, no, they are only abiding by the law, I blame Apple. Thanks Apple, you freaking jerks.
Why would it cripples the phones functionality?

you lose a little and gain alot!

I hope apple going to ban galaxy note too! so I can have jellybean OTA. I playing with half working "Google now", it' kinda nice.
It's not going to happen, normally samsung devices do not receive OTA updates, and must be updated using Kies.

That scenario is very doubtful.
