Google wisely pulled the plug on its Android event scheduled for this past Monday, keeping attendees out of harm’s way and home safe from the wrath of Hurricane Sandy. While we thought that might mean that Google would reschedule a possibly more low-key event for another week or so down the line, it instead decided to forgo the formality of a big launch event and just add the new Nexus devices to its Play Store lineup. That ended up being a nice surprise, but what did we miss out on? Some photos from Google’s venue have now surfaced, giving us a brief look at what could have been.
So, what can we see here? As should be understandable, not much, but there is some cool-looking stuff that we would have loved to had an opportunity to check out in person. Take a gander at those crazy Android chairs, for example. There was also a giant Chrome logo covering the venue’s floor, and considering how this was the event that would have announced the Nexus 4 and Nexus 10, there are Nexus logos and X symbols all over.
We know, it seems a little silly to focus on an event that never happened, but we’re smartphone geeks, and this is the kind of stuff that we simply just eat up.
