T-Mobile Galaxy S II update nixes search feature

08/30, 1:07pm

Unified search removed to avoid patent injunction

The T-Mobile model of Samsung's Galaxy S II has received a software update that removes the unified search feature from the device. As was the case with the Galaxy S III, the upgrade to Android 4.0.3 takes away users' ability to search locally through their smartphones' contents, though they still retain the ability to perform web searches. The update is one in a series of similar updates across multiple carriers as Samsung modifies its phones' features in order to make sure they don't infringe on Apple patents.
