    Google event set for July 24th, Android update incoming - SlashGear (click for full article)

    by Chris Burns - July 17, 2013

    "Today an invitation to a special Google event has been sent to the press promising a breakfast with Android head Sundar Pichai. Though this Googler is in charge of Chrome as a web browser and as an operating system as well, it's far more likely that this July 24th event will center on Android itself, especially considering the several appearances of Android's next-generation features in teasers for the Motorola-made smartphone Moto X.


    Google does own Motorola now, and the time between here and the release of the Moto X grows short, but it is more likely that Google would create a side-event like this to prepare the world for the software side of things before the smartphone is unveiled in full. Motorola's hero phone will carry Google's next edition of Android right out of the box, so to speak, but it's just as important for the company to identify the software's features for the rest of the Android-toting device universe."

    Nexus 7 2 release imminent: tips file in - SlashGear (click for full article)

    by Chris Burns - July 17, 2013

    "Those of you waiting for a reboot of the Nexus 7, aka the most successful Nexus tablet yet delivered by Google, will be glad to see more than one source reporting an imminent release this afternoon.

    This new device has been tipped to be coming to both physical stores and to Google's own online outlet Google Play before the month of July is over. Based based solely on the stated date (July 24th) of the Google event invite delivered earlier today, we wouldn't be surprised if the documents being shared this afternoon are entirely accurate. UPDATE: There appears to be a bit of a hardware leak, as well."

    Android 4.3 leaks for Nexus 4 - SlashGear (click for full article)

    by Chris Davies - July 18, 2013

    "Google still resolutely refuses to give us Android 4.3 - though we're expecting it to finally break cover next week - but that hasn't stopped the leaks, this time with a downloadable version for the brave. The file, shared over at xda-developers, lacks the radio and bootloader, but can still be restored to a Nexus 4 using the TWRP backup app."
