Well it's not like we aren't accustomed to delays. The two companies sent out a joint announcement reading:
"Samsung and Google have decided 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.
Eric Schmidt did say, we shouldn't have to wait too much longer... he did promise us that it would launch by November
Note: Some are speculating that this was done by Google & Nexus out of respect for the passing of Steve Jobs and possible funeral arrangements. If this is the case, I give props to both Google and Samsung for showing the dignity and respect they are giving by postponing the announcements out of respect for his family & colleagues..
Kim Titus from Samsung just released a slightly longer statement:
Thanks Thundercats (Started Original Thread) and Jahmakan for the additional tip..
Samsung and Google have decided to postpone the Samsung Mobile Unpacked event during the CTIA in San Diego, previously scheduled for Oct. 11. Under the current circumstances, both parties have agreed that this is not the appropriate time for the announcement of a new product. We would ask for the understanding of our clients and media for any inconvenience caused. We will announce a new date and venue in due course.
Google released a second statement:
“We believe this is not the right time to announce a new product as the world expresses tribute to Steve Jobs’s passing.”
