Update: The Next Web has learned that the postponed event wouldn’t be delayed for long, with the new date for the Samsung Unpacked: Google Edition event being set for October 27. However, this time both companies would be presenting the new device and Ice cream sandwich in London.
Update – Statement by Samsung: 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 ask for your understanding regarding any inconvenience caused. We will announce a new date and venue in due course.
Whilst Google has remained quiet on the matter, we spoke with someone close to the situation, who mentioned that we “should be there”, further reinforcing speculation that the search giant will use this event to unveil Ice Cream Sandwich and everything it has to offer.
In an turn of events, the Samsung Unpacked 2011 event has been called off. The launch of the new device, Nexus Prime and Ice cream sandwich will be not be happening next week. Google and Samsung released the following combined statement: “Samsung and Google decide 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.”
There were rumors flying high about the anticipated device and some time back we also has a video proof of the upcoming device. Stay tuned for more updates on this news. But we do hope that the day would not be much far before the device rolls out.
