It has been since mid-summer when Google released a Nexus device, rolling out the second-generation Nexus 7, with a fantastic HD screen. Since then, rumors have abounded of what is to come, with Nexus phones and tablets.
The wait may just be over — the Android KitKat Twitter account has dropped hints that seemed to lead viewers to believe the 18th or 28th were viable options. The 18th has clearly passed and the 28th now looms large on the horizon, but there are a couple of signs that may just point to another date entirely.
First and foremost, Google is holding an event this evening in New York City — it’s billed as a “Play” event and journalists have been asked to not write about it. Second, the current Nexus 10 has today gone to an “out of stock” listing on the Play store. Couple that with various leaks which began appearing today, portending to show press renders of the tablet, and throw in last week’s “accidental” posting of the Nexus 5 on the Play store.
Both devices are obviously very close to release. Will they be unveiled under some sort of NDA tonight? Is too much being made of the hints and the show tonight? We will soon find out, as both devices are surely just around the corner.
