Hey Microsoft. That Windows Phone 8 event you have planned for Oct. 29 in San Francisco? Google wants in on that day, having just announced a rival event in New York City, perhaps to announce its next Nexus phone.
Invites were just emailed by Google to members of the press about an Android event, as shown above
What will be announced? Who knows, but the invitation starts out, “The playground is open,” which suggests the event will be related to Google Play, Google’s content store for Android users.
No doubt we’ll see more rumors and speculation about what will happen shortly; watch for the headlines here on Techmeme.
