Nexus Two "Delayed" Even Though It Didn't Actually Have A Release Date Yet

There's a report coming in that Samsung's update to Google's original Nexus One phone has been internally delayed and won't come out as had been initially rumored. It's hard to really call it a "delay" though, since Samsung never actually announced a release date for it.

Eyes are all over the Nexus Two, not only because its namesake relates to the Nexus One, the only smartphone actually developed and manufactured by Google, but also because it will be the first phone to have Android 2.3.

Expectations set the new version of Google's mobile operating system to be finished on November 11. The Nexus Two launch was assumed to coincide with that date.

Tech Crunch reports that "a serious hardware issue" was noticed in the development of the Nexus Two, and production has been halted. The site has no indication on how long the delay will last, but it's likely now going be pushed back to January.

What this does to Android 2.3 itself remains unclear. Google has already committed to a 2011 release of Android 3.0, expectedly the next update. But if no one even has Android 2.3 until next year anyway, how relevant will it be? Or perhaps Android 3.0 will be delayed too, but that would put a huge cramp on the future of Android tablets. Google has previously said 3.0 will be the first version where it will actually fully support tablet manufacturers.

IntoMobile.com , though reports Android 2.3 will still be complete on November 11, and now it may actually be a different phone that gets the honors of having it first.

Samsung is planning a huge media event in New York next Monday. We'll be there to see what new Android phone they'll be showing off. Although originally expected to be the Nexus Two, we're now hearing that it will be something else entirely.

In other words, there's a lot of stuff going on at Samsung. Perhaps it was going too far too fast. We'll update you as we get more info.
