The official reason for the cancellation is vague. Samsung and Google stated, “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.” With all that has gone on in the tech world this week perhaps the death of Steve Jobs has something to do with the cancellation of the launch.
It would be a bit difficult to tout how a new smartphone would be destroying the iPhone 4S is light of the very sad death of Steve Jobs. That is all speculation though; it could just as easily be a sign that the Nexus is not ready for launch. Stay tuned for more updates once the new date is offered.
Things in the tech world can change very quickly. Only a short while ago I was talking about the Samsung Nexus Prime video surfacing and how the phone would be launching next week. Just now Samsung and Google have announced that they have pulled the CTIA Fall product launch that was widely expected to be the official coming out for the Galaxy Nexus Prime.
