If you haven’t got over iPhone 4S you probably should. Nexus prime is all over the place and we have a good and a bad news. The bad news is that Google and Samsung have delayed the launch of Android ICS and Nexus prime. This is what was said in a joint statement:
“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.”
Neither Google nor Samsung have given the reason for the delay but it is believed that this decision could well be made to pay respect to Steve jobs who passed this week.
Although there could be other reasons too for the delay, maybe Android Ice cream sandwich is not just ready to be displayed in public or maybe there’s some issue with Nexus prime. Since the companies have planned out a joint event, they would want both ICS and Nexus prime to feature in the event.
With no nexus prime and Android Ice cream sandwich, unpacked event will certainly lose on followers. New dates are expected to be announced soon, and the date of release of products won’t be affected as the delay is just in the announcement.
We still don’t know what causes the delay, but it jut adds up to the heat. People are eagerly waiting for Nexus prime and they can’t get wait to get a glimpse of it. Google’s delay card could go either way, add to the excitement or end up losing the momentum.
