Google and Samsung cancel the Nexus Prime/Ice Cream Sandwich "Something BIG is coming" event
UPDATE: Samsung's spokewoman Chenny Kim has confirmed that the reason for postponing the Android ICS/Nexus Prime debut is Steve Jobs passing away: "We believe this is not the right time to announce a new product as the world expresses tribute to Steve Jobs's passing,"


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. 

It 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. Both topics of the event were leaked today in a supposedly Nexus Prime running Android Ice Cream Sandwich video.

Here's the official statement:



We don't know if this has anything to do with Steve Jobs passing away, or something else is brewing, but it's a disappointment to say the least. We'll keep an eye on the developments and update as soon as we know when a new date has been set up.
