Samsung and Google postpone the unveiling of Ice Cream Sandwich and Nexus Prime

You might have read that we posted about the upcoming Samsung event scheduled for CTIA this  October 11, but today it has been postponed. Rumor has it according to Droid Life that the announcement was postponed out of respect for the late Steve Jobs, who passed away Wednesday evening.

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.

Update: From Droid Life
Kim Titus from Samsung just released a slightly longer statement:

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.

While this is definetly sad news, it does not necessarily mean the release date has changed, just the announcement. Samsung and Google were expected to announce Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and the long-awaited Galaxy Nexus.
