Are Android Ice Cream Sandwich and Nexus Prime delayed due to an Apple patent dispute?

Now, here’s a possibility presented by Russian analyst Eldar Murtazin - Samsung and Google didn’t postpone their October 11th event because of Steve Jobs, but they rather did so because of the patent war with Apple

This is a discussion for a news. To read the whole news, click here

apple wouldn't dare sue android directly. if it loses, and it probably would, every other case it has is in jeopardy. If they tried, google would just pull out its fat new patent portfolio and counter sue them into stalemate or worse.

this is just another baseless rumor. They didnt get the whole way to a week before the big show and then go "oops", they would have known that months ago.

Oh thats cool, yea its the processor that powers the phone, so the processor is pretty important and it's cool to look at this stuff and imagine what the future phones holding these processors will be like.

lol yes, thats good news. It SHOULD put it on par.. or at least close to on par with Exynos 4212. My only concern with Krait is that they are doing a total redesign to catch up to the power that samsung has simply by shrinking and mostly keeping the same design. Of course, that concern is also reason for applause, as we all know, I'm not a fan of the current snapdragon chipset line. It definately has its positives.

the A15 designs are where the real money is at. If you have a dual core now, that is definately the next minimum that you should wait for.

At least we know 2012 wont be a slow year between dual core 28nm processors, kal- el, and the move to A15 designs. Now we just need a more reliable benchmarking system! :)

Google > Apple

I laughed at the fat new patent portfolio part.
I wish that would happen. Apple digs it's own grave.

Count me in the highly suspicious of Murtazin's claim group. In the U.S., it is almost impossible to get a sales ban until there is a final ajudication, which hasn't happened in any of the recent patent lawsuits.

I think the reason for a re-scheduled release is to suck the oxygen away from the Nokia/SO7 release - look at the date and location of the two releases....

"You will have an announcement of the NexusPrime very shortly and will be seeing it in shops sooner than you think"

This was from Samsung UK today. Why people listen to these dumbass analyst is beyond me.

This coming from the village idiot. Recall how remixfa tried to prove someone wrong and quoted a website as a reference. However, remixfa failed to read what the website wrote, and in the process, remixfa embarassed himself again. What was worse was when remixfa's error(s) were pointed out to him, remixfa made the situation worse by digging a deeper hole and continued to exhibit a behavior of being a petty sore loser.

I really wish remixfa, the village idiot, would stop talking out of his ass! The funny part is how remixfa made it personal and now accuses the other party of that fact. Simply unbelievable.

I agree this is just some more National Enquirer type stuff. Just silly rumors, Apple would not dare mess with Google!

Oracle took on Google and guess what, Oracle won. That's not to mention how the Justice Department has taken on Google as well and Google disclosed it had to take a $500 million charge. Google is not exactly without sin like the Virgin Mary.

Oracle hasn't won yet. That's still being dragged out, and Oracle has been less than honest about the use of the software in question. The former head of Sun Microsystems had a blog post where he PRAISED Google for using the Java code in question, and has since supported Google unequivocally. Oracle deleted that blog post, forgetting that things such as caches exist. If Sun had cared about the use of its code in Android beyond being happy that Java was still relevant then they would've taken Google to court long before Oracle bought them out.

ardent1 you are so wrong, Google has not lost to Oracle. That is still ongoing. Also Google had an agreement with Sun first, then Sun was bought by Oracle & now Oracle has the beef with Google. So you are 100% wrong. No company is perfect, anyone knows that, but Apple would not dare hit up Google. You know what would happen to Apple if Google services where taken out of the iPhone? Let's just say it would not be good for Apple. People depend on Google services, not on Apple. Thus Androids #1 smartphone OS status!

Damnit apple, stop playing with Samsung's devices! What other way are they identifying details such as "the angle at which the phone handle on the phone app is pictured".

Google, Samsung - reschedule the event here, in the US, and soon. Put this baseless rumor to bed.

That is all.

I really hope Mr. Murtazin is wrong. I hope Apple concentrates on innovation rather than litigation. Judging by the news of their current sales it doesn't seem like they need any help from the courts.
Plus, it sounds logical that Google and Samsung wait until the initial 4S hype fades, so that they can create a new hype with ICS and Nexus Prime.

Although Eldar's accuracy has been questionable of late, he's been pretty close with Samsung ever since he "fell out" with Nokia. So I'd say there's a reasonable chance of this being accurate.

No way !!! Apple would never do that, they have always believed in motivating innovation and healthy competition.

I personality doubt it. google could just have avoided using a release date and build up hype if they needed time to Work Things around and not waited for a final version before doing that

If this is true I'll be happy. Marketing tactics FTW. I can deal with waiting a week or 2 just to make sure more people get a Nexus than an iPhone.
