Unfortunately, the Google’s Oct 29 event won’t be happening, we have just learned. The move is coming in due to Hurricane Sandy; wherein Google has decided to be “better safe than sorry”.
Not only the search giant was expected to unveil its no-more-mysterious Nexus4 handset along with 10.1-incher Nexus tab and 3G-equipped 32GB/64GB Nexus 7 models at the Waterfront Pier’s (New York) event, but some of Android’s die-hard fans were expecting the next Android version to be unleashed in the form of 4.2 Jelly Bean.
Following is what Google has to reveal regards its move to postponing the 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.
Stay safe and dry,
The Android Team
On the other hand, alongside Google, the US online carrier T-Mobile has also decided to postpone its impending event, which was also scheduled to happen on October 29 — and we’re not going to blame T-Mo for taking the safe [same] route.
Moving on, if you had any doubts about the scale of this monstrous Hurricane — dubbed “frankenstorm” — do have a look below at NASA’s latest image to see its size compared to the entire planet.
Another report by Reuters added:
The late-season storm has been dubbed “Frankenstorm” by some weather watchers because it will combine elements of a tropical cyclone and a winter storm and is forecast to reach the U.S. coast close to Halloween.
