We've been hearing about the Nexus Prime for months now, but things have really been heating up in the past week or so: first, Samsung released an official teaser trailer about the event and gave us a glimpse of the device's side profile. And yesterday, we had two conflicting sets of specs "leak out" (though obviously neither was confirmed). Finally, the official AndroidDevelopers YouTube account put up a video called "Android ICS Launch," set to stream during the Samsung Unpacked event in which the Prime and ICS were set to be revealed.

Update: Samsung's own blog confirms the delay.

But alas, Samsung has released a statement effectively stating that the Prime will no longer be revealed during the October 11th event, and the video has been pulled (for now, anyway). The official joint statement:

Samsung and Google have decided to postpone the Samsung Mobile Unpacked event during the CTIA in San Diego, previously scheduled for Oct. 11. Under the current circumstances, both parties have agreed that this is not the appropriate time for the announcement of a new product. We ask for your understanding regarding any inconvenience caused. We will announce a new date and venue in due course.

Certainly a bummer for the Android world - the Prime is  a very highly anticipated device. Still, we shouldn't have much longer to wait - Eric Schmidt promised that we would see ICS in October or November.
