Samsung and Google have reportedly postponed the launch of the Nexus Prime and the Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) OS.

According to Engadget and SlashGear, Samsung and Google released a joint statement about the postponement of the Nexus Prime launch. It reads:

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

According to both sites, the statement came from the U.K. division of Samsung.

Other reports, including one from Phandroid a later one from SlashGear, speculate that the postponement of the Nexus Prime and ICS launch (“is just not the right time to announce a new product,” in Samsung’s and Google’s own words) is out of respect for the passing of Steve Jobs.
