Google and Samsung apparently agreed that there will be no product launch during the Unpacked event in San Diego scheduled for October 11th. According to the joint statement from Google and Samsung, both companies agreed that it is just not the right time to announce the new product and that new date will be shortly announced.
Since the event was scheduled for next week there has been a lot of rumours floating around and apparently it looks like we'll see more of those. The decision might be related to the unfortunate passing of their fiersest rival and tech icon, Steve Jobs, as the funeral could be held around the same time as the scheduled Unpacked event. If that is the case, we give credits to both Samsung and Google.
In any case, Samsung and Google should follow up with a new date pretty soon. Following Apple's unimpressive iPhone 4S launch, we guess they can take their time.
