"We are canceling our Monday morning event in New York due to Hurricane Sandy," a note from Google's Android team explains. "We will let you know our plans as soon as we know more. Stay safe and dry."
Monday's event was originally scheduled for 10 a.m. ET and was expected to include the announcement of Android 4.2 as well as a variety of new gadgets.
Rumors, reports, and leaked images suggest that Google's intending to unveil a new Nexus smartphone — an LG device dubbed the Nexus 4 — as well as a 10-inch tablet called the Nexus 10. Additionally, the company is expected to add two new models to its Nexus 7 tablet line — 32GB devices, one of which should have HSPA+ connectivity.
The cancellation of Monday's event doesn't mark the first time that Google has adjusted its product announcement plans based on current events, of course. In October 2011, the company rescheduled the unveiling of the Galaxy Nexus smartphone and Android 4.0 (better known as Ice Cream Sandwich) out of respect for the passing of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs.
