No Nexus (yet) today? Catch up on Windows Phone 8 instead

Yeah, yeah. Everybody's waiting on pins and needles to see what (if anything) Google's going to announce today, given that the Nexus event in New York City was canceled because of Hurricane Sandy.

Nexus ain't the only game in town today, though. We're Android through and through, but we also like shiny new toys as much as anyone. So we're going to be kibitzing on WPCentral's coverage of the Windows Phone 8 launch.

Frankly, I'm more than a little interested, given how impressed I've been so far with Windows 8.

So head on over to WPCentral, and let's see what's what. But don't forget to swing back by these here parts -- we've got a feeling it won't be an entirely quiet afternoon.
