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.

Did the ENTIRE world really that that much of a hard-on for Steve Jobs? In what world is it insulting to hold a conference about some pretty sweet upcoming tech because some guy whose company who just released a shitty phone, died? OMG HE'D TURN OVER IN HIS GRAVE!! Gimme a break. Whatever, as long as this doesn't delay the launch of the new NEXUS then who cares, right?

The cynic in me wants to say the delay is more to have clear tech headlines. I Hope its more genuine than that though.

Jobs was a Major influence in the industry for many years. Larry Page was barely a tot when Jobs was at his peak the first time round.
The tops of these companies all know one another personally as well as professionally.

"Some guy"? "Shitty phone"? Either live on this planet or don't.

As much as I don't like the iPhone for its closed nature, I do respect Steve Jobs, and I admire all his ideas that made Apple a succesful company again.
That's the reason why I modded you up

Don't believe the bullshit press statement. This was held up by some kind of last-minute technical snag.
