Samsung/Google postpone Nexus Prime launch

Summary:Samsung/Google: 'Not the right time to announce a new product.'

Samsung and Google have cancelled the planned announcement for the Galaxy Prime/Nexus Prime scheduled for next week.

Here's the statement from the two tech giants:

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.

No reason has been given for the cancellation. Some are speculating that this might have been done as a mark of respect following the death of Steve Jobs, but I'm not so sure.

I guess we'll have to wait and see what Samsung and Google do next.

What might you be missing? Romanian site Gadget.ro have what they claim is a video of the handset.
