We knew that when Samsung and Google canned their Unpacked event for this week that was set to unveil the next Nexus, that it would be rescheduled, but we had no idea that it would be in a different country. While the reason for the cancellation is currently under debate, what is not, is the anticipation for this device. Ever since Samsung played that commercial telling customers to “expect something big” we’ve been clambering for the Nexus. According to an inside source (yeah, we know, another one of those) who reported to Engadget, October 19th may be the date and Hong Kong, may be the place. Andy Rubin is expected to be at an event and guess who else is going to be there, Samsung! So will Google and Samsung utilize this date to make the Nexus and Ice Cream Sandwich official? Could be.
I know many journalists here in the states may be upset by the news, as am I, but perhaps they have a good reason for this change of venue, and country. (*cough* Patents *cough*)
