They may have gotten advanced notice of Steve Job's funeral, and it might've been on the same day they planned to announce the Nexus Prime. While I don't like a lot of the crap that Apple did, I do respect Samsung and Google for paying respects to Steve by delaying their announcement, that would be a MONUMENTALLY CLASS ACT.

Go outside and see what the people are wielding. Its mainly high end droids with large screens and how many of those are sold in comparism to mid rangers? If u ask me, among droids, the average would be about 3.7. When you consider smartphones and throw symbian devices and the iphone into the mix it definitely drops to about 3.5.
My guess..they don't want the outing date of the Nexus to coincide with the funeral date of Steve Jobs. They want the worlds undivided attention to the ICS and the Nexus Prime when it is announced. Both days coinciding will be a huge damper to what will be a perfect outing for a SUPER PHONE.
it is true....samsung have pulled out all the unpacked application from the market

Since there are way more Droids than iPhones, and most high end Droids have 4+" screens, I would say 4+" is the screen size standard.
Maybe they found a bug in software or something of that sort. Not likely to be a hardware issue since that would probably take longer to resolve.. or it could be a result of the unfortunate event a couple of days ago.
Pronbably not the camera hardware... wasnt it so, that when SE introduced the Satio, there was only a 9 megapixel camera at the event.
Has there really been an "official" statement? :s the source just does not seem legit.
its all about media coverage. No news agency will dedicate their 5 mins of mobile coverage to ICS or new prime when they can talk about jobs death/funeral

Don't you know the advantages of having a bigger screen? The reason why Apple maintains 3.5" on 4S is to produce a very high pixel density, which is kinda trick (cheat for some).
If you haven't got any announcement or anything from Samsung neither from Google, why it's need to be true? A lot of site posted it with ? mark after the label. I think it's a bad joke, like you wrote it. The Unpacked app on the androids didn't change. I hope Samsung or Google will make reaction for this...
This is a Good Move for Google and Samsung. It shows respect, courtesy and care for even it's competitor which is more than I can say for alot of it's Fans.
We can wait :)
We're not rushing here, if the reason is Steve's death, we should respect it. I wish for a great journey of Steve in his second life.
They were originally rushing putting Ice Cream Sandwich on the market to challenge the iPhone 5, but then saw that only the 4S was released and it was a major fail. So they decided that they could take their time to make an even more polished phone, because well, they arn't going to lose any customers to the iPhone 4S.
I cant take the wait any longer!! I'm not even due an upgrade but still wanna get it anyway!! So long as its not 5mp and 1750mah. This phone is just perfect!!
But anyways if its due to the passing of Steve Jobs. All respect to Google & Samsung for delaying... +1 to Google & Samsung!!
