The event planned for October 11th with Google and Samsung set to release the Galaxy Nexus which runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is postponed.
The reasons quoted were that it just isn’t the right time out of respect to Steve Jobs.
Whether this is true or that the hardware/OS combo was getting rushed out the door is nothing more than speculation. What is not speculation is that this is an OS that has been significantly delayed and has a lot expected of it out of the gates. It is meant to run on almost all phones and tablets alike, and will reduce the ongoing fragmentation of Android. This Fragmentation has been remedying itself, mostly due to the fact that Froyo and Gingerbread have been around for quite some time. To completely unify the base of the OS would require Google to supercede the manufacturers and be responsible for pushing out the upgrades en masse. This is highly unlikely. Either way if this is a matter of respect for Steve Jobs, or a matter of polishing Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich then it is the right thing to do. Of course waiting is not one of the stronger attributes of technerds.
