Google's Big Android Event Cancelled Due To Hurricane Sandy

So much for fun new Android goodness next Monday, October 29. Google's big event in New York City as been cancelled (perhaps rightly so) due to the incoming frankenstorm Hurricane Sandy.

The event, which was all but certainly going to involve the announcement of the new Nexus 4, a Nexus 10 tablet, and a new models of the Nexus 7, was originally in an area that is now an evacuation zone. Microsoft's duelling Windows Phone 8 event, on the other side of the country in San Francisco, now gets the opportunity to proceed with 100 percent of the day's spotlight. No word yet on when the Android event may be rescheduled.


    Sucked in google for trying to one up the windows phone announcement.

    So let's get it right fellas. Has the event really been cancelled or simply postponed to another time? There is a difference you know.

      It's been cancelled so far. Hurricanes are unpredictable.

    Anyways u know what they r going 2 no worries...

    I know this may sound like a terrible joke but...

    Apple would have cancelled the hurricane. amirite

    If the hurricane leaves a bit of devastation, microsofts launch is going to loose coverage in the mainstream press.
