Google Nexus launch event cancelled Hurricane spoils launch event.
The event was originally scheduled for Monday (29th) in New York, but Hurricane Sandy has forced Google to cancel the Android event.

"We are canceling our Monday morning event in New York due to Hurricane Sandy. We will let you know our plans as soon as we know more," a statement from Google reads.

The Android event has been widely anticipated, expected to be a launch pad for new Nexus products, including the Nexus 4 from LG and Nexus 10 tablet from Samsung. It gave Google a well timed chance to respond to Apple's latest iPad announcements, and the launch of Windows 8 and the Surface with Windows RT, earlier this week.

Last year, Google cancelled a previous Nexus event following the death of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs.
