What are you expecting Google to announce at their Oct 29th event?

The Galaxy Nexus Google+ page (https:­/­/plus.google.com­/113238550815846424978­/post...) has confirmed that there will be multiple Nexus devices announced at the October 29th event. What are you expecting (or hoping) they will announce?

It feels like new rumors have been popping up almost daily. The early rumors were that as many as five manufacturers would release Nexus devices this year. LG may get its first chance at a Nexus device based on it's upcoming Optimus G. HTC may release one as well, hopefully based on the HTC J Butterfly. There has even been a rumor that Sony is working on something.

There have been tablet rumors as well. Asus may upgrade the 16 GB Nexus 7 to 32 GB and could include a 3G radio. It's possible that the existing 8 GB Nexus 7 will get a price drop. Samsung might be working on a 10.1 Nexus tablet with an impressive 2560 x 1600 display.

And, in typical Google fashion, any new Nexus announcement includes a new Android version. Android 4.2 has been popping up in server logs for weeks. It remains to be seen if it will be called Key Lime Pie or if it will be another iteration of Jelly Bean. Leaked early builds have shown notification bar tweaks, security upgrades, and other minor improvements.

While I doubt we will have live-streamed skydiving again, it looks like it should be an exiting event. Be sure to tune in on Monday, October 29th at 10am EST (www.youtube.com­/android) so you can add the new devices to your Want List.

I think we'll see revised/expanded N7 options (32GB & 3G versions), LG Nexus, Galaxy Nexus+ or something to that effect and probably one other item (hoping for more) either Sony Nexus, Nexus 10 something like that. I doubt we'll get a full version bump to 4.2 but you never know. I'm pretty excited but I really just want a new Nexus (my Nexus S is verrrry long in the tooth at this point)
