Google cancels Monday's Android event over hurricane
The company works to reschedule a big launch for Nexus phones and tablets after the event site falls inside the evacuation zone.
Android fans eager to get a look at the latest Nexus smartphones and tablets will have to wait a little longer. Google e-mailed reporters today saying that it was canceling the event because of concerns surrounding Hurricane Sandy.
