We’ve already seen Google and Samsung work together to address the ongoing litigation that is being brought forward by Apple Inc. and one of the changes that we have seen is the loss of Google’s universal search on the Galaxy Nexus. Since then, we’ve seen Samsung extend their reach by also removing universal search from the Samsung Galaxy S III within the United States and this of course was a proactive step to prevent any further injunctions against the Android device.
Now, it appears that Samsung may have gone just a little to far by pushing this update to international Galaxy S III handsets. There are lots of consumers that have been following the lawsuits that have been going on and it seems that this feature removal on international devices went to far. Well, it turns out that Samsung is on the same page as the public and it’s been confirmed by a company spokesperson that this change was an error and that the company will reintroduce it in a future update. The official comment that Samsung made on this subject did indicate that they would restore the universal search function on UK based Galaxy S III, but it is assumed that this will apply to all global locations outside of the United States.
