Google’s Nexus 4, Nexus 10, Nexus 7 3G and Android 4.2 announcement event cancelled, Sandy to blame

by: Chris SmithOctober 27, 2012

Thanks to recent leaks and reports, we have a general idea of what Google should unveil during its upcoming media event – initially scheduled to take place in New York on October 29 – but, with two days left to go, we have some bad news from Android fans: the playground is temporarily closed.

Google had to cancel the announcement due to Hurricane Sandy. The location of the event – a waterfront pier – is now in an evacuation zone, as New York is now in a state of emergency.

Android Authority, invited to attend the event, can confirm Google’s cancellation. Here’s the short email we have received:

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.

Stay safe and dry,
The Android Team

Google was expected to unveil new products on Monday, including the LG Nexus 4 smartphone, the Samsung Nexus 10 tablet and the 32GB versions of the Nexus 7 (Wi-Fi and Cellular + Wi-Fi). All these devices should run Android 4.2 Jelly Bean out of the box, with Google also expected to introduce the main features of its new mobile OS version.

The company will surely reschedule the press event and we’ll be back with more news on the matter as we have them.

    Like we didn’t know what was coming out anyway.

      But still we don’t know the new features of 4.2 and we don’t have a release date yet either. This sucks.

      • Daniel Cavanagh

        And we have to wait longer to order the goodies that we know so much about and want so badly.


      So, if you know, please tell me when will come HTC DLX in Europa and what price will have.
