Dang. Looks like I held too long- was thinking of buying a gnex..
Seems like there is a consensus there are two reasons they stopped selling the gnex:
2. because of the lawsuit thing.
As far as I understood the lawsuit (but im no lawyer) its a ban against samsung directly selling the gnexus while other vendors (VZ, google, etc) still can. truth? (if so why google play not selling it)
And is the update for JB then? Or did I miss some big news? Why not continue to sell it and upgrade prev models to JB OTA unless to build suspense/demand for it
EDIT: Found a good news article
describing the situation. " Apple, as you might imagine, posted the bond quickly, and the Galaxy Nexus was pulled from the Google Play store and other online retailers
" apparently the ban applies to all stores but there is hope!
"According to a report from AllThingsD, Google and Samsung have prepared a software patch for the Galaxy Nexus that should resolve the patent infringement on which the injunction is based, allowing the Galaxy Nexus to go back on sale."
