SourceGoogle decided to postpone the Nexus Prime announcement out of consideration for those mourning Steve Jobs, highlighting the respect Apple's competitors held for the visionary.
The two companies were set to unveil their first smartphone based on Android's Ice Cream Sandwich at a wireless industry trade show in San Diego, but put those plans on hold.
"We believe this is not the right time to announce a new product as the world expresses tribute to Steve Jobs's passing," the companies said in a joint statement, underscoring the impact of Jobs' death.
I admire Google for doing so, but why isn't Apple doing the same and postponing the iPhone 4S release?
