Today Google has just officially announced plans for an Android-related media event to be held next Tuesday, January 5, at its Mountain View campus. We can’t see any other outcome than the launch of the Google’s Nexus One – the highly anticipated HTC-built handset seemingly under development by Google. It has been expected for an early January release and we’d be shocked if it isn’t what this event is all about.
Google’s still trying to hold onto what little shreds of a secret it has in the headset and falls short of stating exactly what the event will be about. The document, titled “Please join us for an Android press gathering,” simply states the following: “With the launch of the first Android-powered device just over a year ago, we’ve seen how a powerful, open platform can spur mobile product innovation. And this is just the beginning of what’s possible”.
An earlier report today originating on TmoNews had T-Mobile quoted as stating: “Google, with support from T-Mobile, is scheduled to launch a new Android device in early January. The Google Android phone will be sold solely by Google via the Web. Support for this device, including troubleshooting and exchanges, will be managed by Google and HTC. T-Mobile will offer service support, including billing, coverage, features, and rate plans.”
So it’s all but a certainty that the Google’s Nexus One will hit the scene in a week or two. [via PCWorld]
