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.

Of course it has to do with personal feelings. Not Google's and Samsung's, but yours, the consumer's. Apple has just released a phone to a giant collective MEH!. The Nexus Prime is almost certainly going to be a more exciting piece of hardware, and the software will most likely bring along some newsworthy features. Taking a jab at Apple by releasing it a week after the new iPhone might be cool, but with Jobs' passing, it's just not the right time. Bad taste. Bad PR.

There is no 'meh' from consumers apparently where iPhone 4s preorders are beating all previous phones. Remember the consensus amongst the tech commentators was that the original iPad was going to be a flop. The iPhone 4s will replace the iPhone 4 as the world's top selling handset.
