GADGET DESIGNER Google has had to postpone the event where it was expected to announced Nexus smartphones and tablets thanks to some angry weather.

The firm was set to hold an event in New York this morning, but since people are leaving New York City and heading for higher ground, it has wisely decided to postpone it.

"The playground is open," said the Google invitation. "Join us for an Android event." The smart money, as in money that had seen retailers advertising them, was on the firm announcing a Nexus phone and a Nexus tablet with 32GB of storage and perhaps 3G connectivity.

We have not been able to get a response out of Google yet, but it has confirmed the delayed playground opening to US IT news website The Verge.

"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."

The event was to be held at Basketball City in New York at 9:00am, however, that area is now an evacuation zone.

We weren't expecting too many surprises, oh except for acts of nature, and were waiting patiently for Google to announce the Nexus 4 that the Carphone Warehouse started showing off last week, and the 32GB, maybe 3G Nexus 7. After those, anything else will be a nice surprise. µ
