Google and Samsung have decided to postpone the Unpacked event scheduled on October 11. Companies have not given any specific reason for this change, but one can imagine that it is because of the recent death of Apple Co-Founder Steve Jobs.
Google would certainly not want to launch a product, when people are mourning Jobs’ demise and attending his funeral. Clearly a nice gesture from Google and Samsung, and for those wondering about the new dates – they haven’t been announced right now.
We will keep you posted as we hear something.
The exact statement from the companies:
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.”
