The BGR reports that Google has cancelled their Monday Nexus press event. The event of which was 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, same time!
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 the latest curve by curve display Motorola Android phone and even branded the event “the event of the day”, but however the event was more than over-shadowed by the Nokia Windows Phone event introducing the 820 and 920.
Google, of course, is not going to blame Microsoft Windows Phone 8 for the event cancellation, Google in question have blamed Hurricane Sandy, which in some cases could be a good reason, but its hard not to see this as worrying competition for Google in the big world of Smartphone attention which Nokia and Windows Phone 8 currently seem to be leading on, lets just hope numbers reflect the excitement over Windows Phone 8.
