We hate when this happens. Just as this year’s CTIA is drawing closer and closer, we catch wind of a disappointing delay. Samsung announced today that the product launch event planned for next week with Google won’t be happening. Here is what Samsung had to say:
Samsung and Google have decided to postpone the Samsung Mobile Unpacked event during the CTIA in San Diego, previously scheduled for Oct. 11. Under the current circumstances, both parties have agreed that this is not the appropriate time for the announcement of a new product. We would ask for the understanding of our clients and media for any inconvenience caused. We will announce a new date and venue in due course.”
It’s been no secret that Google and Samsung teams have been working tirelessly on the Galaxy Nexus, so we’re a bit shocked to hear about a delay so close to the expected launch. It looks like we’ll just have to get our fix from the video that was leaked earlier today, and wait patiently for a new date and venue announcement.
