Hurricane Sandy pretty much ruined any chance for us to get our hands on the new Nexus devices Google has coming. As you may have already noticed Google has gone ahead and announced the devices anyway. Our first question was whether or not they’d be rescheduling the event following the hurricane — after all, despite the horror of mother nature we still want to take an early look at these at some point.
The unfortunate answer is no — the Nexus event that would have been will no longer be, and that’s that. There’s no telling what to expect in terms of product demos from Google. We imagine they’ll want to release quick video promos for the new tablets and smartphones, and an Android 4.2 walkthrough wouldn’t go unappreciated.
The most important thing is that everyone on the east coast threatened by this storm do everything they can to remain safe, though, so we know Google has a very, VERY good reason and we aren’t too bummed as a result. Stay tuned to Phandroid as we look to bring you continued coverage on all things Nexus. Be sure to read the announcement posts for the 32GB Nexus 7, the new Nexus 4, and the new Nexus 10 tablet. As for Android 4.2, you can read more about that here.
