    We have had enough leaks to sink an aircraft carrier, but this latest supposedly comes directly from the source. LG India seemingly confirmed today that they have a Nexus 4 phone that will be announced at Google's Playground Press event on October 29th. Additionally, they also let slip that Android 4.2 will indeed be launched at that time as well. Here's the quote,

    Along with this reveal, we have some new intel as well that seems to coincide with previous rumors. Here's another quote with details,

    With all of this new stuff supposedly coming, it's possible that Google may actually steal a little bit of Apple's thunder with the iPad Mini release this week. What do you guys think?

    *Yawn*, we've been hearing that to the point that it's hardly even a rumor anymore that Google is releasing the next Nexus on that day. But what I really want to know now is about Android 4.2.

    The LG Nexus sounds wildly disappointing. No SD card slot, marginally upgraded specs from last year, and it's only claim to fame will be how it'll get upgraded faster than most to the next version. And the latest round of rumors implies there won't be multiple handsets like it originally sounded like from the early rumor mills.

    Am I excited for the event? Yes. But unless I hear more about multiple nexus devices I'm not going to get too excited about the hardware coming out.

    ^The quad core S4 pro cpu is a marginal hardware upgrade?! Not sure about that. And it sure is nice having project butter!
