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

Litigation, litigation and more litigation, that's the name of the game, and Google is losing it. Whether it be Microsoft, Oracle or Apple, it does not matter, sooner or later they will be suing the heck out of Google. Right now they are concentrating on Google's partners and Android, but it will only be a matter of time before they take on Goliath himself. And by the time it's over Android will be dead, close to death or the rivals (Microsoft, Oracle and Apple) will be earning more money with Android than Google ever will. A recent article also stated that if you want a secure Android you will have to pay up (licensing fee) to a company owned by Motorolla. These added costs, along with the current litigation cases will kill Android or beat it to near death.

It's time Google really start to innovate and create unique patented technologies in the mobile field, instead of copy catting. Google needs to be really innovative to survive.

is simply because there is things you can take and some you copied.. notification is from Google not a certain manufacturer... and Google also does business with Apple...is not google or Android vs Apple...

@gallitoking lol out of all fanboys/girls apple fans should know better than too believe in rumours especially after all the rumours of a so call iphone 5 with redesign that never happened...now logically do you believe official statements by companies or a rumour by a nobody...if samsung and google were using steve jobs death to hide the fact that they are being sued for using apple patents i am more than certain apple would be all over this...please people use some common sense before actually believing in RUMORS

Just like how remixfa, the village idoit, try an UNSUBSTANTIATED RUMOR that R&D expense is part of gross profit margins. The punchline here is how Apple's own SEC filings would have tipped off remixfa he probably smoking crack as usually. Talk about the pot calling the kettle black!

Considering that the point of Apple is to create a climate controlled box that you live, eat and sleep in, I'd say we do. And Gallito, you would take the word of a well known unreliable rumor mill over a multi billion dollar corporation that had deep ties with Jobs and Apple.

They aren't doing a very good job with killing it, if that's the plan. Android has gained more market share recently, not the other way around. Android isn't going anywhere. Why anyone would listen to anything that this or any other analyst have to say, is beyond me. This guy has no more information than anyone of you reading this article. He knew if he made this claim, that he'd get a lot of attention. These idiots would fade away if sites like PA, would stop promoting them.

This rumor has no support to back it up. As far as I'm concerned this says, "Some Russian guy said something related to phones."
