The Samsung-Google joint Nexus Prime-Android Ice Cream Sandwich event rescheduled for Oct 19th?

The Samsung-Google joint Nexus Prime-Android Ice Cream Sandwich event rescheduled for Oct 19th?
Samsung might have broken a couple of Android fan hearts when the company said it will cancel its October 11th joint event with Samsung. After all, it was expected to bring none other but the much anticipated Samsung Nexus Prime and the newest edition of Android, Ice Cream Sandwich. The official reason for the cancellation was Steve Jobs’ passing, but now as almost a week has passed rumor surfaces that the two companies might be ready with a new date for the event - October 19th, an anonymous tipster shared with Engadget.

Interestingly, the place where the event will be reportedly held is Hong Kong, and the occasion it will coincide is, is the AsiaD: All Things Digital conference.

Previously, another rumor had it, Samsung was going gearing up to hold an Unpacked event in London around October 27th, which would match Nokia World and thus could be a direct blow to Windows Phone.

The sooner, the better, though, and if the earlier, October 19th date turns out true, than you might want to think over your plans for that Wednesday evening - that’s when the big announcement is allegedly going to happen.

I don't think apple has the balls to fight google directly, that would not be a pretty fight for ether parties involved.

You are the stupidest iFag known here in PA. All of your statements are useless and totally non-sense. You can't even back on your own statements. You're a taco50, gallitoking, the_miz 'wanna be' ..

I am in the same boat as you. I will get either the HTC Raider/Holiday or Nexus Prime, whichever comes out first. Hope they come out at the same time, so that I can compare the two side by side.

So, to go to Hong Kong to announce a US verizon timed-exclusive phone? yeah right.

I think because iphone 5 was not announced last week that they feel they can hold off longer to work out any bugs that they may have... Or possible finalize a few extra features to show off at the event to "wow" apple users and convert them/not lose current android users to ios5

The death of an admittedly strong presence in the mobile industry shouldn't halt it's competitors from making products indefinitely. You think Apple would delay the 4S if someone iconic in the Android or WP world died?
