No clues given to release; rumored new Nexus devices possible
In the span of seven days, Apple is holding an event widely speculated to be the launch of the iPad mini, Microsoft's Windows 8 is launching Windows 8 accompanied with the Surface RT tablet, and today Google sent out invitations for an event in New York City on October 29 on the same day that Windows Phone is released. Rumored to be at the event are new Nexus hardware items, possibly both a tablet and a phone. Also speculated is an update to Android, version 4.2, bringing security updates amongst other features.
Conflicting Google-branded rumors have popped up in October, including the presence of a Sony Nexus X and a report from Bloomberg citing "familiar sources" claiming that LG is building the Nexus 4 phone.
Other rumors have called for a Nexus 7 tablet price drop, and possibly a larger Nexus 10 device.
