The Next Great Android Phone Is … Delayed

The much anticipated Samsung Nexus Prime was promised to debut this week, but on Friday word came that the reveal would happen at a later date.

The reason given was that it was out of respect for Steve Jobs, his passing, and probably largely because of the start of sales of the iPhone4S.  It seems that interest in the newest iPhone is large enough that the Prime shouldn’t screw around and put itself in a place where it can miss out of some media attention.

Why?  Cause this new Android is going to scream.  A super fast processor, a load of memory and the rumored ultra thin and curved body.  It will also feature the new Android OS “Ice Cream Sandwich” and a display capable of 720p resolution.

The delay is smart, respect the moment of Jobs’ passing, and position your new product in the best marketing window.
