Samsung Galaxy Nexus now shipping from the Google Play Store

The Samsung Galaxy Nexus is back in stock and shipping without any delays from the Google Play store. The device was briefly taken down from the Play Store after Apple was able to get a sales ban of the device in the U.S. Shortly after it was taken down, Google announced that the device would be available again through its online store after some changes to the search feature on the phone were implemented.

Earlier this week, customers were once again able to order the Galaxy Nexus from the Play Store but had to wait 2-3 weeks before it shipped, according to the notice on the site. That notice is no longer there and the phone is currently available for all to purchase with no shipping delays. Surprisingly, the Play Store listing for the device still says that Android 4.1. Jelly Bean is coming to it soon. Just yesterday, Google announced that it started rolling out Jelly Bean to Nexus devices, starting with the HSPA+ variant to the Galaxy Nexus, the one currently sold in the Play Store.

Either way, if you’ve been waiting for a Galaxy Nexus from Google Play, now is the time to go out and get it. If it doesn’t come with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean pre-installed, don’t worry, it will be receiving it in a few days!
