Google confirms October 24 “night out” Google Play event

It looks like Google has begun sending out some invitations. The event is set to take place next week, on October 24th and in New York City. The catch is, while we are hoping to see the Nexus 5 and Android 4.4 Kit Kat -- this event appears focused on Google Play. In fact, the announcement mentions a "night out with Google Play" with further talk of music, movies, games and a special performance.

Sadly, that special performance isn't specifically listed as being Nexus 5 or Kit Kat related. To that point, it was said the special guest will be Capital Cities. Anyway, as we often see with these types of event invites, the details are light and that leads to some speculation. Or in this case, the hope the Nexus 5 is made official.

Touching on the bit about this being "a night out with Google Play event" and there is potential to see the Nexus 5 and Kit Kat. After all, as we saw back in July with the 'Breakfast with Sundar' event, the name didn't exactly spill all the details. That is to say this seems to fit the pattern we saw in July -- a mysterious title and an announcement.

But again, all we can say for certain is this event will be focused on Google Play. While we hope this not be the case, it could have nothing to do with Nexus or Kit Kat. That all being said, one thing we can say for sure, there will certainly be one difference compared to the July event -- Hugo Barra will not be unveiling the Nexus 5 as he did with the Nexus 7.

    While there is so much about the Nexus 5, there doesn’t seem to be anything about the Nexus 10 leaked or rumored at all

      Only Rumor I heard was Asus was making it instead of Samsung. But that was a few months ago, no one’s said anything since

        That’s also all I’ve heard. It’s weird. At this time last year there were tons of leaks about the OG Nexus 10, but the Internet has been mum about the Nexus 10. I hope that they still announce one (and it would be a better-kept secret than the iPad)

        If Asus does make a new Nexus 10 and they provide a keyboard/mouse/increased battery dock like they have for the Transformer I will likely sell my current Nexus 10 to get the new one. Otherwise I’m pretty happy with my original Nexus 10 and see no need to replace it.

    I think we will see the Nexus 5 and kit kat but they dont want to make it obvious and then something happens like last year and they just have to have a silent release because if they cancel then they will have backlash from ppl. I say this is what we’ve all been waiting for

  • Cory Wilson

    I don’t get how they could have a whole event about the Play store, and not mention Android or new devices, nor do I get why these sites claim they have “reliable sources” that tell them its definitely not about kitkat or the new nexus. Same reliable sources that claimed Motorola would be making the Nexus this year? Same reliable sources that claimed October 15th was the date of the kitkat event? Bottom line, if the reliable source isn’t from Google themselves, then its not a reliable source

    I’m surprised the conspiracy theorists haven’t locked on to Capital Citie’s album name … “In a Tidal Wave of Mystery”. Sounds like a good title to drop a whole lot of surprises in.
