Google was set to host an Android event on Monday in New York City where we'd be seeing multiple new devices from the Mountain View company, but we have some bad news this afternoon. We can confirm that Google has indeed canceled their Android event scheduled for Monday, October 29th due to Hurricane Sandy.

In case you haven't been watching the news (other than Android Community news) New York City Governor Friday issued a state of emergency for the surrounding area based on the incoming storm. There's been multiple evacuation points and Google's event was going to be taking place right on a waterfront pier.

Google's Android event had plenty of excitement around it. With the LG Nexus 4, a brand new Samsung Nexus 10 tablet, as well as a new 32GB 3G flavor Nexus 7 were all set to be announced. Then we were going to get our first official look at Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, and tons of other exciting news from the folks at Google. Sadly it looks like that won't be happening on Monday, but better safe than sorry.

Google's canceled their event in New York City, and at this point they've not rescheduled or supplied any further details on the situation. Many were expecting their devices to be available and on-sale the same day -- but now everything is up in the air. We'll be sure to report back as soon as we hear more, and stay tuned because Google will probably be announcing a new date and location shortly. For all those on the East Coast, stay safe and keep dry.

    I think Google won’t arrange a new time for the event, they just put everything on the Nexus page and Google Play (maybe November 1st) for people to buy…
