Google and Microsoft were heading against each other with the official announcements of their latest versions of the OS – Android 4.2 and Windows Phone 8 on October 29.
However, Google's Android event which was slated to happen in New York City has been rescheduled as Hurricane Sandy was fore-casted to strike the city on Sunday or Monday.
According to a TheVerge report, Google's Android event has been canceled. On Friday, Andrew Cuomo, Governor of New York City declared a state of emergency in response to the storm. Consequently, the venue where the Google's event was to take place is in the evacuation zone.
A Google spokesperson provided the following statement regarding the cancellation of 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.”
Of course, the cancellation of the today's event could be of great disappointment for the tech enthusiasts and Google fans as the search giant was to unveil not only the Android v4.2 but also multiple Nexus devices including LG Nexus 4 smartphone, Sony Nexus X handset, Samsung Nexus 10 tablet and 32GB variant of the Asus made Nexus 7 tablet. However, these were based on rumors and the exact offerings by Google remain as highly guarded secret.
