Google, Samsung: Nexus event moved out of respect for Jobs

Google confirms Nexus event moved for Steve Jobs

Google and Samsung have confirmed that their decision to delay the Galaxy Nexus introduction was in respect for the death of Steve Jobs. The two wanted to give space for mourning. The cancellation of its CTIA presentation hadn't delayed the product itself but was an indication the two Android partners didn't believe an announcement would be respectful if held so soon.

"We believe this is not the right time to announce a new product as the world expresses tribute to Steve Jobs' passing," Google said.

The Apple co-founder's end has sparked a rare level of cross-industry courtesy as many acknowledge what Jobs had accomplished in technology. Tributes have from those who have been opponents, partners, or both at the same time, such as Microsoft's Bill Gates and Google's Eric Schmidt.

Other companies are still thought on track to hold introductions at or near CTIA, such as Huawei, although their events aren't as high profile.

    Less about Jobs...

    ... more about not offending the buying public.

    Judging from the silhouette...

    that thing isn't just big, it must be gargantuan! I mean, it looks thinner than it is, because the overall surface is huge. You can't even see the top and bottom ends in the ad.

    Cargo pants are coming back!

    Classy

    With all the suing and counter-suing it's refreshing to see some civility during a challenging time for Apple.

    Nice gesture

    It doesn't matter if Google and Samsung really meant it.
    It matters that they did it.
