    The unpacked app was pulled from the market and videos on youtube were taken down. I think that's pretty telling.

    The phrasing "now is not the right time" in the statement from Google/Samsung usually refers to something happening (Jobs' death) that would negatively impact on the announcement. With all the press focusing on Jobs/Apple, announcing what Samsung hopes to be a true iPhone competitor and wanting to tout it as superior to the ip4S, it wouldn't make sense for them to announce the device at a conference where there will probably be other phone related announcements, and they will all be buried by the press by Apple/Jobs and IOS5 launch along with the 4S. My guess is the announcement will come the week of the 17th or 24th and then they'll be able to announce the device will ship the next week, just like Apple.

    Not sure how to take this rumor, but i would think if this was true we would see the news on googles stock and nothing has been released.

    London, strange, especially if this is supposed to be on Verizon first.

    Just got official word from Kim Titus, head of Samsung PR.
    "Samsung and Google have decided to postpone the Samsung Mobile Unpacked event during the CTIA in San Diego, previously scheduled for Oct. 11. Under the current circumstances, both parties have agreed that this is not the appropriate time for the announcement of a new product. We would ask for the understanding of our clients and media for any inconvenience caused. We will announce a new date and venue in due course."

    Sounds Steve Jobs related...maybe they want to take some shots at Apple in the presentation?

    Edit: P.S. - I call BS on that 27th/London rumor after seeing this announcement from Samsung.

    Does this mean CTIA itself is canceled or just the presentation from Google and Samsung. Who else will be there.

    After all the delays and waiting and comparing and refreshing... what I'm least looking forward to is letting my wife know that the announcement has been delayed. My Storm 1 sometimes doesn't ring when people call, and I promised her that this was my next phone and that I would have it ASAP. The eye-roll of the century is coming up when she hears that the new date isn't even set.

    If I had something I would post it -- just saw a few people post it on Facebook. Granted I know nothing on Facebook is real, just seeing it a few times over made it stick into my head.

    Would be real classy if it were true though.

    Also makes me wish I had real "sources" though.

    I don't buy that it's Steve Jobs related. This is business, folks, and business like this doesn't get put on hold for anyone. If I were a betting man, I would bet that it's ironing out a few kinks before they debut it. My best hope is they've got to manufacture some AT&T-branded phones.

    If Jobs' funeral and/or memorial is around the same time I could see Googs backing off since many tech exces will be there (including their own) and it just wouldn't feel right to make a product announcement at that time.

    Postponed til the 27th? Google and Samsung Choose October 27 for New Ice Cream Sandwich Event, in London? - Droid Life: A Droid Community Blog

    Made a new thread for new date and non-US discussion as well.

    If a US carrier doesn't get the first ICS phone I will be really annoyed.
