Samsung Gets a Repreive: Can Keep Selling Galaxy Nexus For Now

A judge extended the suspension of a preliminary injunction that would prohibit the company for selling its smartphone in the U.S.


Consumers eyeing Samsung's Galaxy Nexus will continue to find the phone available for sale.

Samsung scored a minor victory this week by continuing to escape a ban on the popular smartphone, at least for the time being. On Monday, the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit ruled in favor of Samsung by extending the suspension of the preliminary injunction on the Nexus.
