[News]Google Event Scheduled for October 29th in New York, LG Nexus 4 likely to be unveiled

Google will be hosting an Android event at 10a.m. (EDT) on Monday, October 29th in New York.

The event is expected to feature the unveiling of the LG Nexus 4 smart phone with Android 4.2 and a 32GB version of the Nexus 7 tablet.  Other possible product introductions could include a $99 Nexus 7 tablet, a Samsung made HD Nexus 10 tablet, an HTC 5" Nexus Phablet and possibly Nexus smart phones from Sony and Samsung.

Personally I'm hoping for a 1080p HTC Nexus phablet on Verizon.  That might be able to tempt me away from a Samsung Galaxy Note 2.  Make it happen HTC!

  1. I heard last night on the Droid-Life webcast that this date (10/29) was also the day Microsoft chose to have their big Windows 8 announcement...wonder whose news will come out on top? :)
