Google Nexus event cancelled

Monday event shelved as Hurricane Sandy heads for New York

Google has cancelled its planned Nexus event this coming Monday, 29 October. The Big G has decided to delay the unveiling of its new products because of Hurricane Sandy, which is due to hit New York City tomorrow.

In a brief statement, Google said, “We are canceling [sic] our Monday morning event in New York due to Hurricane Sandy. We will let you know our plans as soon as we know more.”

Google had been expected to show off its new Nexus 4 smartphone, as well as the much-leaked Google Nexus 10, a key rival to Apple’s newly released iPad with Retina Display.

Hurricane Sandy is being billed as a ‘perfect storm’, with New York preparing to bear the brunt of vicious winds and rain in the next 24 hours. As soon as we get news of when Google reschedules the event, we’ll be sure to let you know.
