Samsung And Google Postpone Huge Android Announcement Out Of Respect For Steve Jobs


Steve Kovach wrote in interesting article in the Business Inside, you can see he piece here.

STOP THE PRESS: A Google spokesperson said “We believe this is not the right time to announce a new product as the world expresses tribute to Steve Jobs’s passing.”

Are you MAD, this is not respect this is political and social correctness of the lowest order.

Steve Jobs’s is tragic for his family and friends. But do Samsung and Google really think his family and friends will give one hoot for any news about some HUGE Android announcement? If Steve Jobs could he would be falling over with laughter.

Get grip guys, if you have an announcement then make it!

I you are holding back due to some strange notion that it will make converts out of all the iPhone lovers holding vigils, then you are so wrong!

About the only way you will do that would be if the announcement said your next Android would look like Number Six (plaid by Tricia Helfer) from Battlestar Galactica.

On the other hand if your development flopped and you can’t make the announcement then be honest about it. Don’t try and hide behind a man’s death.
