Google cancels Android event, the playground is closed


Google was scheduled to unveil the Nexus 4 and Nexus 10 on Monday in New York, but we have just learned the event has been cancelled due to Hurricane Sandy. We don’t know when the event will now take place, but Google says they will share their plans as soon as they know more. Back to the waiting game we go.

    Why Sandy, why!!?? What have I ever done to deserve this? My hopes of finishing my revised draft on Monday and watching the Google event as my reward have been shattered.

  • kwills88

    Bad luck? It’s 2nd year in a row that they have to cancel the Nexus event!

  • Nate B.

    It’ll be a week later as usual. and Classes were canceled because of the storm so I thought I was going to have the day to myself to watch this.

  • Christian

    Good fucking grief, just make a G+ post with the prices. Everything else about these devices has already leaked.

  • www.phonewbie.com

    That’s the penalty for all those leaks we got.

  • MyMilan

    If nothing else it shows that they have more common sense than the republicans did with their convention… LOL

  • great googly moogly

    How about they, um, idk, do it in another city?

    • The jungle bunny

      Android event fragmentation?

  • veracu

    It’s HAARP!!! Hahaha

  • great googly moogly

    They JUST noticed the hurricane is coming? C’mon, should’ve been scheduled for somewhere else all along. Why not just do it online? Who goes places anymore?

    Probably the work of steve jobs.

  • Rimmir

    Before reading the title and not the article, I thought they just cancelled it because of all the leaks.

  • tagstar

    They should have stuck with Sandy (Bridge). This is payback. Arrrggghhh

  • SteveJobsLIVES

    God doesn’t like Google either. They’re thiefs! They stole everything from Apple and MS. Funny how they [POOgle] was also trying to steal MS’ event as well. Karma is a bitch, POOgle!

    • Nate B.

      Yawn… -___-

    • Anthony E

      Which company is POOgle? You start out with a rant about Google, then randomly bring in this POOgle company. Can you give us a link to their website or something? I’d like to see their products.

  • aranea

    i was afraid of this.

  • iamtpb

    • jamal adam

      I guess nature was getting tired of seeing all these leaks and whatnot and finally snapped.

  • LG Nexus

  • birdman

    I was kind of planning on buying a Nexus 7 32gb on Wednesday. Guess not :/

  • Nathan D.

    Dam it! I was looking forward to seeing this. Dam u weather!

  • PeterP

    Didn’t they do this last year and try to pin it on steve jobs dieing.

    • Anthony E

      Yep. And, then the event ended up being really shitty. Like they just held it in a back room somewhere.

  • Ardrid

    While I can’t say I’m thrilled about today’s event being canceled, I hope everyone in the path of the storm stays safe.

  • Samal

    Does anyone know what type of SIM card the Nexus 4 takes? Are we able to swap SIM cards from previous 4g phones and not have to worry about changing plans?

    • richwright

      mini sim card not the regular size
