Update: All Things D is reporting that the event was postponed out of respect for Steve Jobs. “We believe this is not the right time to announce a new product as the world expresses tribute to Steve Jobs’s passing”. The device itself has not been postponed, so the time between unveiling and availability won’t be too long. Good move, Google & Samsung; respectful.
Wow, here’s some massive news: Google and Samsung have cancelled the October 11th UNPACKED event where the Nexus Prime was expected to be announced alongside Ice Cream Sandwich. Google and Sammy had the following to say: “Samsung and Google decide to postpone the new product announcement at CTIA Fall. We agree that it is just not the right time to announce a new product. New date and venue will be shortly announced“. No new date has been set. Looks like we’ll have to hold onto that video and those screenshots for a little while longer before we see the real thing.
