Submission + - Samsung Galaxy S3 Stripped of Local Google Search (

DavidGilbert99 writes: "Ahead of a legal battle with Apple, Samsung has begun disabling the local Google search functionality on the international version of the Galaxy S3.

This mean you'll no longer be able to search contacts, messages, or other content stored locally on your phone using the in-built Google app.

The interesting thing is that Apple has yet to sue Samsung over this feature in the EU or the UK and so it seems as if Samsung is being ultra cautious ahead of the the companies' big court date on Monday next."
