∞ Samsung, Google punt on Nexus Prime rollout


Samsung and Google have yanked their CTIA Fall product launch, the event expected to debut the Samsung Galaxy Prime aka Nexus Prime. “Samsung and Google decide to postpone the new product announcement at CTIA Fall” the two companies said in a terse statement. “We agree that it is just not the right time to announce a new product. New date and venue will be shortly announced.”

The Galaxy Prime/Nexus Prime phone reportedly features a 4.65-inch display and runs Android 4.0, code-named “Ice Cream Sandwich.” Neither Google nor Samsung specify what caused the delay. SlashGear speculates it may have something to do with Steve Jobs’ funeral.
