Android Ice Cream Sandwich Delayed

Earlier today, Google announced the delay of the expected launch of Android’s latest upgrade, Ice Cream Sandwich.

The Ice Cream Sandwich, the latest in a series of operating systems named after sweets, was anticipated to combine previous smartphone and tablet versions, known as Gingerbread and Honeycomb, into a cohesive whole.

Recent plans for the Samsung event on October 11, where the Ice Cream Sandwich and a new Samsung phone running on the operating system were expected to be unveiled, has been canceled.

The reason? A Google spokesperson said it was out of respect for the loss of Steve Jobs.

“Samsung and Google decide to postpone the new product announcement at CTIA Fall,” the companies said in a joint statement. “We agree that it is just not the right time to announce a new product. New date and venue will be shortly announced.”
