PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless I don't think I've ever seen this before, but please correct me if I'm wrong. Samsung anf Google were supposed to unveil the Samsung Nexus Prime with Android Ice Cream Sandwich next week, but in a surprise announcement, the companies said that the press event is cancelled - out of respect for Steve Jobs. In the meantime, leaked specifications reveal that the Nexus Prime could be a real doozy.

Somewhat ironic, given the relationship between Apple and Samsung recently.

Not really, good PR is good PR.

Business is business, life is life. The relationship between Samsung and Apple resembles a marriage about to break up.

Not really, the google and apple execs have known each other long before ios and android came to life.


I believe this gesture from google/samsung can make apple look bad. They can make it even worse by holding a silent minute at the nexsus event then, in the memory of Jobs, donate $10.000.000 to cancer research.

This, as Bruce Lee would put it, is "the art of fighting without fighting". Or maybe more correctly "the art of doing evil without being evil" ;) ;) ;)
