you seriously think they delay their announcement because of a leak? You know how hard it is to "Adjust"?

Cnet already got a response from Samsung spokesperson, it is because of Steve's passing.

Yeah, the 4S introduction was so mind-blowing that Samsung and Google will both need to do some serious soul-searching before they even think about launching new products.

This is only happening because Steve Jobs' funeral is on Tuesday and Samsung/Google CEO's are attending it. It's not going to be pushed back a month, maybe a week or less.

thanks synack there's alot of cynic and ungrateful pos's in this thread.

be sensitive people. give some respect. the difference between which product is better is not warranted and honestly who gives. its merely a phone

Hawk, you've apparently decided to crawl back out of your hole.

This was a bad mistake.

Don't panic... an event delay doesn't necessarily mean a launch delay.

And at the rate the Prime is leaking, do we even need an official announcement?

True. Just wanted to at least see what the launch date is for the different carriers.

Yes!!. It would have been great to have confirmation of some actual information, solid information, as well as BigV staking a claim on it.

PEOPLE!
Calm down!
I don't know what is the big rush towards all new announcements?
Those mean only that we have to spend our (hard earned) money on little more advanced gadgets.
I say NO!
Until manufacturers came out with something spectacular and mind blowing must have device, like 2-3 days battery life of battery with heavy usage, bendable displays, holograms or projectors at least or something like that - No I won't buy slightly more tuned processors and little higher resolution screens, or super duper plus HD ultra fancy schmancy AMO-or-any-other-LED and 3D, not even 9D.
Give us something worth of that high price tag you ask!

Those features would cost you thousands of dollars and are years away, if you want to keep using your flip phone until then, go ahead. But from what I've seen of the Nexus Prime (or whatever it will be called), it seems far more advanced than my Droid Incredible, and I'm ready to upgrade.

Probably because of Steve Jobs. It wouldn't be right to steal all the thunder after the death of the man who practically started it all. Its like an insult to his memory. After all, without Jobs, there wouldn't be android. And I know many of you would disagree but its true. Postponing the event is the least they can do to honor Jobs and his life's commitment.
