Samsung delays smartphone

Written by Nick Farell

 



Did not want to be seen as disrespectful

Samsung has delayed the launch of a new smartphone while the world paid tribute following the death of Apple Messiah Steve Jobs.

Samsung had planned to introduce the new product based on the Ice Cream Sandwich system, at its Mobile Unpack event in San Diego tomorrow. A Samsung spokesman said it was not the right time to announce a new product while the world was expressing tribute to Steve Jobs's passing, Samsung has yet to decide on a new date for the release, the spokesman said.

It seems to be a bit of a pause in the war between Samsung and Apple who are suing each other in 10 countries over 20 cases since April. There is a big case taking place on Thursday in the US and Samsung said it has no plan to delay scheduled hearing dates due to Jobs's death.

Less than a day before his death on Wednesday, Samsung widened its patent-infringement cases with the US to ban the sale of Apple's new iPhone in France and Italy.
