Following yesterday’s report that we could expect to see the release of the new Samsung Nexus Prime and Google’s Ice Cream Sandwich at CTIA next week, both companies have pulled a surprise move and decided to cancel the joint event.
A combined statement from the two companies, released today, reads:
“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.”
Although neither company has specifically stated the reason for the event’s postponing, it is believed that the decision is a mark of respect to Steve Jobs, Apple’s co-founder who sadly passed away earlier this week.
It looks like neither Google Ice Cream Sandwich or the Samsung Nexus Prime will launch next week, then, but the event is expected to take place on a later date in the not-so-distant future. In the meantime, you can enjoy a leaked video of the two in action which was discovered just this morning.
