The BGR reports that Google has cancelled Mondayâ€™s Nexus press event, where they were set to announce a new Nexus phone by LG and a new 10 inch Nexus tablet.
The event was to be in New York on Monday 29th October at 10AM, and was in opposition to the Microsoft Windows Phone 8 event, which is in San Francisco at 10 AM on the same day.
The timing of the event, which was announced after Microsoft announced theirs, would have left blogs and journalists deciding which event to attend and which to give the greatest priority. Google did the same at the last Windows Phone event, announcing some mediocre Motorola Android phone which sank without splash in the media coverage that day.
Of course Google is blaming Hurricane Sandy, but it may be the brewing Windows Phone 8 storm they are really afraid of.
