The Google October 24th event has not even happened and there are already contradictions of reports. There had been thought to be new hardware being unveiled during the event, but it seems as thought there will be no new hardware. This would mean we should only expect new software.
The Google October 24th event start time will be 7:00PM EST on October 24 in NYC, or 4:00PM PST or 12:AM on October 25th for those in London. Droid Life say that looking at the invite it would suggest this event will be Google Play inspired, which means we should expect to see details on movies, music and games.
Because there is no mention of Android, we have to think that there will be no mention of Android 4.4 KitKat, or the Nexus 10, and other such devices. We do find it strange why Google would hold an event just for Google Play, it seems a waste of a good day.
Having said that, Google could still surprise us and offer Android users something very special, what this might be is anyone’s guess.
Whatever happens with this event, it is not going to generate the kind of excitement that we will see today from Apple’s event, as we know there is plenty of new hardware coming.
