[Update] Google sending out invites for October 24 event

Update:

According to the source of this invite, Russell Holly, who is always spot on with his information, there will be no new hardware at this event. Google, quit playing games with my heart!

Original article:

Among a myriad of leaks and rumors and conspiracy theories, Google is finally sending out press invites to an October 24 event inviting everyone to join them for a “night out with Google Play.”

That’s right, just six days from now, Google will be unveiling the latest and greatest products they’ve been cooking up in Mountain View. The invite is rather bland, and doesn’t mention anything about Android, KitKat or the Nexus 5, but it’s hard to imagine Google throwing an event right now without announcing everything you need to know on the update and handset. We might even get some Nexus 10, Google Watch and Android TV news if we’re lucky.

The event itself kicks off at 7PM EDT in New York City. Google has been known to stream their events through YouTube, we imagine this event will be no different. We’ll be sure to update you with all the information you need to know on the event, so be sure to keep a lookout.

      my neighbor’s sister makes $86/hr on the internet. She has been without work for six months but last month her income was $17115 just working on the internet for a few hours. my review here……… http://iop.li/FQ

        Hi kevinsoy6,

        Your sister seems to be lying to you. If she makes $86/hr and earned $17115 “just working a few hours” then it doesn’t add up. She must have worked about 200 hours last month to earn that much, which is more than the average person. So either she’s lying to you or she’s taking it from the backdoor or giving Hugh Hefner a virtual bj. Basically what I’m trying to say is, no one gives a shit about your slut sister selling herself on webcam unless ofcourse she’s doing so to give us a sample or the nexus 5′s front camera.

  • RoyalJoker

    I really wanted the nexus 5 but my phone is broke and I use it everyday for emails for work I tried to wait but Google is playing. Note 3 here I come!

    • nicknowsky

      u r gonna be waiting till after xmas to get ur hands on one…..everyone is failing to remember the Nexus 4 supply issue…if anyone seriously wants a Nexus5 right away there might be a long wait. Get Nexus 4 off amazon or ebay for 250-300 shipped…Nexus 5 will be close to $400 after all said and done…get a Note 3 now dont hold and prey for the N5

    Not surprised — it appears that Google is continuing to downplay Android releases, and put more emphasis on Google Play updates.

    Bad timing, Google. Right when everyone is expecting a Nexus launch this month. Lol

    • Guest

      Aside from bloggers & Phandroids, no one is waiting for Nexus5 or the know kitkat updates.

  • nicotinemind

    iGoogle will be killed on the 1st of November. Was kinda expexting something to come out at this time…

    • ihatefanboys

      “iGoogle” ?

      • nicotinemind

        A homepage setup with RSS feeds. Yeah, an old way to do things, but many liked it. Been on the kill list for a while now, Google has been warning of the end for a month now. This event might soften the blow, if nothing else. I’ve moved my stuff to Netvibes, but set up Chrome to open iGoogle in a other tab.

        It has an Wikipedia page, if interested read : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IGoogle

  • Nicholas

    now I may be reading to much into this but the update says no new hardware AT the event. Could this mean launch dates could still be announced?

  • nicknowsky

    u notice GEEK.COM took the link down…none of guys know Google is planning…no new hardware/ OK sounds good. lets get confirmation and just keep it to the facts before every android site starts inn with the conspiracy theories

  • Broseph Stalin

    I don’t think Google would host a press event at this time without it being the Nexus 5′s launch.
    The idea alone is just stupid.

    • josh

      They are probably doing this to make a surprise.

  • nicknowsky

    I HIGHLY doubt theres gonna be a Nexus Watch…my cousin works at google and laughed when i asked him

  • scubabum

    Nexus 5. KitKat. Whatever. Google, just take my money.

    • Guest

      That sounds like what Apple customers say.

      • Guest

        Except Apple customers pay twice as much willingly. They love the iCult and will give all their money to their god.

  • donger

    Still this is great news.

  • Ali

    I wonder If Android 4.4 would be announced at least? Doesn’t make too much sense to hold an event solely focusing on Google Play store.

    That would be like Apple holding an event only to showcase the App Store..

    My Nexus 4 was broken in an accident 2 weeks ago :( I would have instantly replaced it but since stocks have been deplated pretty much everywhere I’m waiting on a Nexus 5. Waiting… waiting… still… waiting…

    If I have to wait much longer I may go crazy – using my old HTC G2 just isn’t the same 3 years later

  • renyo

    Hey so anyone know what’s happening today? Or is there a disclosure agreement which is why everything is so hush…

    • king

      Yeah I was wondering that too. Its the 24th and no news anywhere

  • neight

    Uh, yeah. Did this even happen?

  • acuda27

    So how did that event go AndroidAndMe……you were the only android site I visit that got an invite or knew about the event, I wanna know what went down. The 24th has come and gone and still no news. Or was it all made up to get traffic?
