Google and Samsung just came out with a joint statement that they won't be holding the Samsung Mobile UNPACKED event at CTIA next Tuesday, which was dubbed "Something BIG is coming" in a teaser recently, and was widely expected to see the announcements of the Samsung Nexus Prime and Android Ice Cream Sandwich...

as long as they release the phone by next month and no later than that!

On one hand, the pressure of a mind-blowing Apple announcement was relieved with a mediocre Apple showing.
On the other, Apple clearly made a statement that they are confident that media creation (read: a decent camera) and services (read: Siri) are what will increasingly be important to users, at the same time that Samsung and Google were clearly betting on better screens, fatter pipes, faster processors and an OS that could take advantage of multiple cores.
Take the combo of the two, plus Samsung's prowess at making good cameras and Googles know-how in providing top-notch services, and hopefully we'll be looking at an adjusted Nexus Prime in a few weeks that has all of what Samy and Goggles had in mind, plus a trounce of the Fruit's wears.
Or, unfortunately, maybe somebody at Google suddenly got a letter from Apple legal, looked at the new device and said, "oh, crap, it's a bent iPhone" and pulled the emergency break...

Classy of Jobs and Apple to schedule the funeral the day of the announcement of the ultimate iphone destroyer. Now I have to wait another couple days to decide on a phone?

I hope you're just a troll. If this kind of ignorance, self-centeredness and bigotry is how people really think, this country is in worse shape than I thought. You give self-respecting Android fans a bad name.
By the way, the funeral was YESTERDAY.

why would they wait? apple didnt wait to release something new? why is samsung so worried about steve jobs passing and them putting out a new product? so they are going to wait for all those people who want a new iphone to get one, and those possible customers of the ICS phone, might get an iphone. so how is that smart?
