Samsung Admits Software Upgrade Mistake
Samsung has admitted that the recent update to it’s Galaxy S3 was accidental – it was designed to remove the ability to search multiple places (web, apps, contacts etc) via a single interface. It was supposed to remove the feature only in the US, but it has done so on phones in the UK too.
This is in response to a court case initiated by Apple; they claim that the ‘all-in-one’ interface infringes a patent from Apple’s iOS system.
Samsung have stated that they will fix their mistake within the next few days.
