The ban being overturned is naturally great news, but considering that the Galaxy Nexus runs stock Android and not Touchwiz, I’m not incredibly surprised to see this overturned early. After all, most of the accusations made against Samsung were due to changes they added in Touchwiz, not stock Android.
While Samsung still has a while to go in appealing the decision of the original trial, this ruling being overturned is certainly a step in the right direction. While it seemed that the courts were very quick to pass judgement on Samsung, this could be the first of what could be many “not so fast Apple” moments.
Apple has declined to comment on the decision, and Samsung is yet to make an official statement.
