Google Nexus Prime and Android 4.0 event canceled


Just a few minutes after the Samsung Google Nexus Prime blurry video leaked Samsung and Google have announced in a mail statement that the Android 4.0 and Google Nexus Prime (Galaxy Nexus..) launch event was postponed / canceled:

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.

There’s still no way to know if today’s leak is in any way related to the decision to cancel / postpone the event. Wild speculation on my part: If it isn’t because of hardware / software issues then it may be related to Steve Jobs death. If his funeral service is set to be on October 11th then Samsung took the right decision. /speculation

Update: It now appears that Jobs death is the reason of the event cancellation according to sources. The new date hasn’t been set yet.

Update: Samsung’s official statement:

“We believe this is not the right time to announce a new product as the world expresses tribute to Steve Jobs’s passing,”

Samsung Google Nexus Prime hands on video and Android 4.0 screenshots

The blurry cam is back in full force today with the first video of the Samsung Google Nexus Prime (or Galaxy Nexus or Samsung i9250..) alongside a handful of Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) screenshots.

The are tons of conflicting hardware specifications floating around lately so I won’t post them here the only thing that is somewhat confirmed is the 1280×720 screen resolution. I’m not really sure about that but the 3 “hardware” buttons and the bottom of the screen seems to actually be onscreen icons ? Anyway, everything will be known on October 11th anyway. Hit the break to check out the video and the Android 4.0 screenshots:

Exchange 2003 bug in Windows Phone 7.5 Mango

Several readers have alerted me about an annoying bug introduced in Widows Phone 7.5 Mango when replaying to mails in an Exchange 2003 inbox:

When replying to an email in a Exchange 2003 inbox on the phone(OS 7.5-7.10.7720.68) the original email text is not included in the sent reply.

Please report this back to Microsoft by voting here. Hopefully the boys in Redmond will be able to quickly release a hotfix for it. If any of you Mango users noticed some other deal breaking bug just post in the comments below and also report it on Microsoft’s uservoice site.
