A reminder that with Hurricane Sandy bearing down on the East coast of the U.S., Google recently made the decision to cancel its "Playground" event, originally scheduled for later today.

A T-Mobile event, also planned for today, has been called off too.

Google's Android event was expected to bring the official announcement of a new Nexus phone, the LG Nexus 4, and new high-res Nexus tablet, the Samsung Nexus 10. Both devices were expected to go live with Android 4.2, which was to be unveiled at the same event. But it looks like we'll have a little longer to wait for these devices -- we'll probably hear more about a rescheduled event in the coming days.

In the meantime, there's plenty of non-Android news today for you multi-platform mobile fans. Our sister site will be live from Microsoft's Windows Phone 8 launch event in San Francisco later today.

If you're expecting Sandy in the next day or so, stay safe and keep 'em charged. We'll see you on the other side.
