Samsung, Google delay next-gen Nexus launch
iPhone 4S release noise would drown out their signal?
Samsung and Google have reportedly cancelled next week's launch of the smartphone everyone expects will be the new Nexus.
Samsung today said the two companies have "decided to postpone the new product announcement at CTIA Fall. We agree that it is just not the right time to announce a new product. New date and venue will be shortly announced".
Pundits are drawn an obvious conclusion: Samsung and Google are delaying the launch because of Steve Jobs' death this week.
But even Apple hasn't put back the release of the iPhone 4S, due to take place the day after the planned Samsung-Google announcement on 11 October, so that seems unlikely.
Barring last minute technical issues with the phone, either the partners don't want their announcement being lost amid the coverage the 4S release will garner, or Google's next version of Android, Ice Cream Sandwich, which the new Nexus will sport, isn't quite as ready for release as anticipated.
Samsung going to bump the spec's
I suspect Samsung are now re-evaluating the hardware (just like they did to the Galaxy tablet when the iPad 2 was launched)
I expect they will replace (the reportedly 5MP rear camera) with an 8MP or 10MP one, and probably bump the processor a little
Steve's death (and impending funeral) has not stopped Apple launching the iPhone 4S
So either Samsung is going to Bump the spec's , or Ice-Cream Sandwich has issues
The specs look pretty decent to me - the screen in particular, curved or not.
Wonder what the reason it
I can't see the point of postponing due to S Jobs passing away. Got to say, the specs (lets face it the only differentiator Android phones have) are rather meh. All this focus on how it may look, I do like the irony of that though :)
Of course they are not confident with their product.
I mean, just look at how bad Galaxy S II is, they must be ashamed of it ;)
"iPhone 4S release noise would drown out their signal?"
Are you serious????
