Samsung USA. “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.”
The circumstances making the launch unappropriated is the death of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs. I think it is a very nice gesture. A pause in the smartphone wars at this time seems appropriate.
