    I'm actually happy it got postponed. I have two tests to study for that day. If it was still on that day I would have been following the announcement and not be studying.

    I'm not insulting google, I'm saying that there is nothing moral in postponing the event, company looks at profit and not to moral.

    Google is well known to is the opposite of the "best place to work", a company that don't care his employees... how can care about Jobs?
    Google actually has a really nice campus and takes really good care of their employees. There are TONS of benefits you get for working for them.

    In my experience, and I am probably older than 99% of you, every act will be interpreted in the worst possible light by some and the best possible by others. And the truth will be somewhere in between.

    But in my life I would rather surround myself with those who look on the bright side.

    Another unsolicited observation is that those who see the ulterior motives in all actions by others are really mirroring themselves and their motives. Very revealing about people. Those who never trust are usually untrustworthy. Look around and see if that is not true more often than not.

    this is what i love, reading these stupid comments on how stupid Google is for delaying the ANNOUNCEMENT of the Nexus. They never said anything about delaying the actual RELEASE of it... To you people that say that this was a bad move you are sadly mistaken.. we aren't idiots here (for the most part) Steve Jobs passed away, you do realize how big of a deal that is in the world of technology? i dislike apple, but that man was a genius and for google to possibly make the announcement of their flagship device in the same week as Jobs' funeral would just be the most idiotic thing to do in the world of BUSINESS.They would be overshadowed by all things Jobs' for the next 2 weeks. Yes they may lose customers here and there but to be honest and we all know this. apple has a cult-like following. they bleed apple and samsung/google knows this. This thing will sell. google and sammy will advertise this like it's their job. im not too worried. with the 4S being announced instead of the 5, The nexus will have a great holiday season. flying off the shelves.

    I feel like being random and chiming in by saying that this is really not a big deal. Sure, I was excited for the 11th, but the phone's release wasn't delayed, just its announcement, so I really couldn't care less. Yes, I really want to see ICS and this phone demonstrated, but I think we can all survive a week or two more to see it all being shown off.

    I say just go by what they say. It is a nice, and classy gesture, and no need to look into any other motives.

    Agreed. The reason for the cancellation of the event is known to not be the cause that may affect the release date.

    It's not that big of a deal people. It doesn't mean that we don't get to play with the devices any later. It only means that we won't get to dream about it earlier.

    I'm glad to see people who talk like this.
    I would like to learn good english but I need to work and I haven't too much time to improve, I know that my english isn't that good but talking on forums is a good way to improve.
    Sometimes people understand me and I always invite who don't understand me to skip my posts

    If Google and Samsung were to do the announcement this week, they would not get nearly the media coverage they were hoping for. If you are a mainstream media source, and you're going to do one "tech" story this week, it will certainly be Steve Jobs/Apple-related. Not a good time to try to make a big splash.

    I believe them that they postponed for the reason stated, but I bet we do not have all the details.

    So many people have called this phone the one that could finally be considered an "iPhone killer". With the date of this launch so close to Halloween I bet that their marketing effort included skeletons, gravestones, "RIP iPhone", etc type of graphics.

    How would that look one week after the death of Jobs? Horrible, that's how.... No thought about canceling, it had to be....

    I don't agree with that thought. There has been more than enough media coverage on SJ last week. The media is now focusing on iP4S, not on SJ. If Google and Samsung want to make the Prime a direct competition to iP4S, 10/11 is a perfect date of announcing it. By cancelling the announcement, Google and Samsung lost potential buyers to iP4S.

    The only people they lost were Verizon users desperate to buy a phone. Most of the people buying the 4GS are iPhone users. The Nexus Prime won't hit shelves for at least 3 weeks. There isn't going to be much migration from iPhone to Nexus.

    surely the delay will not help google to get some iphoners.
    iphoners are disappointed (not all but many iphoners are disappointed) and this is the best time to present a new ANTI-iphone phone.

    The iPhone 4S is better than a 3GS. Most people upgrade their phone every 2 years. The 4S is a much better phone than the 3GS. End of story. I should note in my office every single person (5 people) with a 3GS phone have already reordered the new iPhone. None of them know anything about Android or Nexus.

    You disagree that the 4S is a much better phone than the 3GS? You disagree that most people upgrade their phone every two years?

    I disagree that most people upgrade their phone every two years, proprobably this is true in US,
    in europe iphoners complain the fact that a new iphone is launched every 18months, too much waiting for them.

    in every european forum that I attend users change phone every 9-12 months.
    we have euros

    Phone forums (US/EURO) would be bad place to measure how quickly people upgrade. Phone zealots don't wait. The overwhelming trend in the US is 20-24 for each phone.

    I could never move to the Apple camp with mobile devices. However, ive been living with an old school Blackberry Curve 8330 for the past 2 months since my switch back to Verizon(only carrier with good service where i live) I'm a Nexus guy through and through but i cant help but think that if the Nexus isnt announced soon, im going to have a rough time ahead, haha. I really dislike Verizons current Android lineup.

    even in the US, i don't think most people upgrade every 2 yrs. imo, most upgrade when their phone breaks down or they need some new function only available on newer phones. not everyone out there is a tech nerd that thinks 1ghz cpu vs 1.2ghz is major news.
