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.

Today is a busy day for Nexus Prime - it's been all over the news more than twice. Just hours earlier, we told you about a 'trusted source' who told BGR the phone's key specifications. Well, they may turn out to be completely and utterly wrong.


Haha, it's BGR... are you really surprised? The same website that reported earlier this week that Sprint would have an exclusivity deal for the upcoming iPhone. Does anybody really take these guys seriously anymore?

Anyway, I've been REALLY tempted to start up a website called 'techrumorbullshit.com', which would highlight tech blogs on a 'wall of shame' that keep posting BS rumors just to increase their page hits.

As for postponing the event, this could be a bad idea for those who were on the fence about the next iPhone and waiting for this announcement; it's great to cancel out of respect for your rival's CEO that just passed away, but not when your rival is about to release a phone in a week or two that's going to compete with the flagship you were about to announce.

I don't know that setting up a website which helps increase visitor hits and page ranking based on links-in really punishes a website for posting content designed to increase page hit counts but all the power too you.
