Google 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?

R.I.P. Steve Jobs

No, you are just a mere man. He was a visionary/genius. If it was not for him that Nexus you are eyeing would probably not have been possible. Pay some respect to the guy...... Its little things like this that really show respect.


Edit: And no I am not a Apple fanboy, I own a Captivate before any nerds go off accusing me...

As much as I want the Nexus Prime released, if these companies can put their release aside to honor Steve Jobs, I think that speaks volumes.

I'm known not to be an Apple fan, eventhough I haven't owned an Android phone yet, but give respect where respect is due. Without Steve Jobs we wouldn't have such evolutionary hardware we have today.

Heck, we wouldn't have the Nexus Prime coming out, would we?

You know they did this not to honor the man, but only to wait until the hooplah dies down first
It's business, after all

With the iPhone 4S release still in full effect, you'd think it'd be in their best interest to release the info now, rather then later. Perhaps, they truly are showing respect to Stevie Jobs.

Regardless of how amazing the Nexus Prime may be, it doesn't have the capability to steal Job's thunder. Releasing the phone now amidst the commotion will only leave the product to be unnoticed and forgotten.

Your just a mortal, I'm a wizard. Honestly fellow Chicagoan pointing fingers and calling other people names, it's almost as if you said rich people are gods and were nothing. RIP STEVE you were a very smart man, but you over worked all of your "minions".

So they chose to honor a man who changed the world, rather than honor faceless, ungrateful, and insignificant consumers, makes sense.

You are not honoring steve jobs memory by delaying a release. This is dumb. You can respect his passing and still go on with business.
