Google, Samsung Delay Product Debut Citing Jobs’s Death

Google Inc. and Samsung Electronics Co. delayed a new product introduction scheduled for an Oct. 11 trade show after the death of Apple Inc. co-founder Steve Jobs.

Samsung sent out invitations last month announcing an event in San Diego that would include a look at what’s new for Google’s Android, a software used on mobile phones. The decision was not related to technical problems, said Kim Titus, a spokesman for Samsung Electronics, based in Suwon, South Korea. Jobs, who oversaw development of the Apple Inc. iPhone, died earlier this week.
