Google's huge event for October 29 was to be held in NYC in around 24-or-so hours, but it has been cancelled due to Hurricane Sandy, which is currently swirling around the east coast of the United States and is threatening to make landfall in the New York and New Jersey areas by Monday.
Google are playing it safe and cancelling the event, stating:
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.
The Mountain View-based search giant haven't revealed a replacement date for the event, so we'll have to wait for now. We were to expect multiple things teased and unveiled at the event, LG's Nexus 4, the Samsung-built Nexus 10 tablet running a 2560x1600-pixel display, Android 4.2 and more.
