[The Verge] Google announces Android event for October 29th at 10AM ET

post #1 of 35

It looks like the rumors about an Android event on October 29th were correct. An invitation from Google just landed in our inboxes for an event at 10AM in New York City, and while the invite is light on specifics aside from a tagline reading "the playground is open," the design is unmistakably a reference to the company's Google Now interface. The event's timing is significant for being on the same day as Microsoft's own Windows Phone 8 launch, something that doesn't seem to weigh too heavily on the minds in Mountain View.

It's to announce that they give up, Microsoft is just too good to try and compete with.

I'd imagine the rumored 32GB Nexus 7 is coming then too. My waiting game continues...

Its fun having iPad 3. No matter what from now on just underdogs will appear. Seriously with these TABs dont look at the price. Look at what it can do. You dont even need to upgrade it every year or so. I see people with N7 already thinking of upgrading.

32GB Nexus 7 isn't rumoured. People are getting emails saying their order for the 16GB model has been upgraded at no cost to the 32GB.

I'm hoping for Jelly Bean's successor to be announced, with smoothness and consistency that actually matches iOS.

If I was a gambling man, I'd go order a 16GB model in that case. I've got $250 burning a hole in my pocket, man! As long as I have it before my Thanksgiving trip I'll be happy.
