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,”
