Steve Jobs effect on the tech industry is still being felt
Many were anxiously awaiting the announcement of the
Galaxy Nexus smartphone on October 11
, as the smartphone will spearhead the launch of
Ice Cream Sandwich

Earlier today, the two companies issued this joint statement:
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.
However, later today, a Samsung spokesperson confirmed that the reason for the delay was out of respect for Steve Jobs:
We believe this is not the right time to announce a new product as the world expresses tribute to Steve Jobs's passing. We do not have information on the rescheduling of the event.
