Samsung, Google Have Canceled Next Week’s Ice Cream Sandwich Event

Well, this is curious.

Samsung had scheduled an event for Tuesday at the CTIA show in San Diego, where it was widely expected to introduce the lead device running Ice Cream Sandwich, the next version of Android. Among those on tap to appear was Android boss Andy Rubin, AllThingsD had reported.

Now, though, that event appears to be off, according to a report from Stuff.

That report quotes a statement from Samsung’s Korean HQ, though a U.S. Samsung representative said he couldn’t immediately comment on things. A Google representative was not immediately available for comment.

The cancellation has been extremely sudden, as both companies were talking about logistics for the event as recently as yesterday.

UPDATE, 8 am PT: I’ve independently confirmed that the event is off. Still working on the “why” part though.

When AllThingsD began, we told readers we were aiming to present a fusion of new-media timeliness and energy with old-media standards for quality and ethics. And we hope you agree that we’ve done that.
