The patch will results in updating the devices with the homescreen-based search option simplified to show results from the Web, followed with the local search options. Following this Samsung also responded provided the following comment to publication:

Samsung is disappointed with the court’s decision that denied our motion to stay. We believe today’s ruling will ultimately reduce the availability of superior products to consumers in the United States.

We will continue to pursue an appeal of the GALAXY Nexus preliminary injunction, which we filed on July 2 to the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. Meanwhile, we are also working closely with Google to resolve this matter, as the patent in question concerns Google’s unified search function.

The court granted the motion and imposed a ban, at least for some time on US sales of Samsung’s Galaxy Nexus devices on temporarily basis. With Samsung also filed a motion with the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in order to seek to stay it for the duration of its appeal.
