Google sends out invites for October 29 event

Google has sent out invites to select members of the press in the US for an Oct. 29 “Android event” event in New York City. The invite, which teases “the playground is open” has a stylized background of New York that’s similar to the graphics found in the company’s Google Now service. The main purpose of the presser has yet to be seen, although we’re pretty sure that the next Nexus device, the LG built Nexus will make an appearance during the event. Other rumors say that a cheaper Nexus 7 tablet will make an appearance, as well as a higher resolution model and updates to the Android OS. We’ll be covering the event live via livestream, so keep your browsers locked into the site to get updates.
