Google and Samsung delay Android 4.0, Galaxy Nexus event out of respect for Steve Jobs
In what can be described only as a truly classy move, Google and Samsung have decided to delay the launch event for Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and the Galaxy Nexus smartphone. The event was originally scheduled to happen on October 11 at CTIA, three days before the launch of the iPhone 4S, and one day before the launch of iOS 5 and iCloud:
"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."
"We believe this is not the right time to announce a new product as the world expresses tribute to Steve Jobs's passing."
Nice job, guys.
