July 1, 2012, 3:02 A.M. ET — It appears that the ruling on the Apple vs Samsung Galaxy Nexus sparks a silent protest in the Google-centric social networking site.
As of Sunday, the hash tag #BoycottApple trends in Google Plus, the search engine’s tech-centric social networking site, beating other terms like Microsoft, Hong Kong and Tiger Woods, but it fails to beat Katie Holmes apparently following the actress’ split with Tom Cruise.
Well, we’re not going to talk about the divorce here, but the accurate story behind the hashtag. One Google Plus user said the hash tag trends after the court ruling that banned Samsung from selling its Samsung Galaxy Nexus smartphone in United States.
Okay, I’m not trying to pretend here that I know the real reason behind the hash tag, but visible responses that contain the hash tag mostly talk about court room, lawsuit, Apple, Samsung, Galaxy Nexus and Judge Koh, the judge who ordered Samsung to halt sales of its smartphone in the country.
Apparently, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus is the first smartphone that will receive the much-anticipated Android Jelly Bean mobile operating system. With the new ruling, experts believe that Apple received an early win against Google’s more advanced mobile operating system.
Last week, Google unveiled the new mobile operating system, and has confirmed that it is the first smartphone that will receive the new update mid this month. Early reviews say the Android Jelly Bean makes the Galaxy Nexus run smoother, and its new features like the Google Now and the new Google Search have proven that Google’s mobile operating system is far more advanced than Apple.
