Though Hurricane Sandy caused Google to cancel today's New York Android event, the company did not allow its parade to be totally rained out. Google has updated and expanded its Nexus lineup with a new phone and tablet, while kicking Android up to version 4.2.
Rumors of Google launching a flagship "Nexus" tablet have swirled around since late 2011. It's highly likely that the search giant will show off the "Nexus 7" tablet at the company's Google I/O developer conference on Wednesday.
Google traditionally works with one handset maker to build its flagship "Nexus" Android smartphone. The Wall Street Journal says Google is looking to expand the amount of Nexus smartphones by partnering up with more than one OEM (original equipment manufacturer).
