Google's got a surprise coming up on October 29th, and now we might now what it is. All of it. According to reports by The Next Web, it includes a 3G Nexus 7. Android 4.2, the new LG Nexus and maybe even some 10-inch tablet talk.
An unnamed source revealed to The Next Web that Google's been sending around a video relating to the 29th announcement, and apparently this little clip spills the beans. What beans you ask? A whole bunch of them.
On the Nexus 7 front, Google is reported to finally be revealing the 32GB Nexus 7 we've all been hearing so much about. In addition to your standard model, there will also be a HSPA+ (3G) model, which is turning me green with envy.
When it comes to bigger tabs, sources confirm Google's been working with Sony on a 10-incher that's currently going by the name "Codename Manta" and probably ultimately called the Nexus 10. Probably. It'll run Android 4.2 (Key Lime Pie) and rock a 2560×1600 pixel display, which could boast more pixels per inch than the iPad. Whether this tab will just be announced or actually show up at the event is still up for grabs.
Then there's the long-rumoured LG Nexus 4, which will apparently live up to the hypothesised specs with a a quad-core 1.5 GHz Snapdragon processor, 2GB RAM, 16GB storage, 4.7-inch 1280 x 768 display, and a 8 megapixel rear-facing camera. Naturally, as a Nexus, it will also get 4.2.
Lastly there's the juice about 4.2 itself. Apparently it will support panoramic photos with horizontal or vertical movement by default (take that iOS!) as well as multi-user functionality, aimed to facilitate tablet sharing among families.
So yeah, that's quite the meaty selection of rumours, and we'll have to wait until October 29th to see how they all play out, but you can bet we'll be there and ready to beam all that goodness back to you. Here's to hoping it's all as good as it sounds like it might be. [The Next Web]
