Google Android Event Announced for Los Angeles, November 16th

Looks like Google has a little something up their sleeve and if the event invitation is any indication, T-Mobile does as well. Galaxy Nexus for TMO perhaps? The event is on Wednesday, November 16th at 2PM pacific (5PM Eastern) and those who can’t attend (it’s invite only) can watch live on

A quick Bing Search (just kidding), reveals that the title “These Go To Eleven” is a quote from a 1984 movie Spinal Tap referencing turning the volume up on full blast or as the dictionary now says, “Up to the maximum volume”. Or maybe they just wanted an excuse to get in on the 11/11/11 action.

What will Google announce? Galaxy Nexus with TMO? Music Store? Stake claim to you guess in the comments!

    Okay, seriously now.  If the damned Nexus on VZW is not fully announced or at least on PRE-ORDER by then, i’m gonna be pissed.

  • HalfwayCrook


    • Dean Politis

      Who cares about Verizon?  T-Mobile is where the Galaxy Nexus belongs!!!

      • Covert_Death

        the galaxy nexus belongs on ALL carries, no exclusions at all for this device is what SHOULD be happening

      • allday28

        Yeah cause it sells so well on Tmobile…LOL!!!

    • Ilan Cortes

      What’s sad is that i might leave T-Mobile and get the Nexus on Verizon. my plan is the same. and w/ the double 4G deal. i will get 10GB for 39 dollars (22% discount) and in total it’ll be cheaper than my T-Mobile bill……. i just gotta pay 1000 in ETF. 

      • Ilan Cortes

        ^well hopefully it’s not a said thing :|

  • Roy Harrigan

    Why do you say T-Mobile is a part of this event?

    • HalfwayCrook

      Ummmm maybe because of the T-Mobile logo in the picture at the bottom of the invite.

    • cns2007

      They could just be sponsoring the event possibly.

  • Matt Stively

    They’re opening an Applebee’s in android market!

    • Fernando Madrigal

  • reznorfan0

    It took a google search to realize the spinal tap quote…..seriously?

    • Ilan Cortes

      Yeah…. i had to google it.

  • endone

    I know i shouldn’t get excited until the announcement comes, could be a big let-down, but I’m excited :'( 

  • Steve Kellner

    Shame on you for having to google “these go to eleven” to get the Spinal Tap reference.

    • robjackson81

      Just pointing others in the right direction ;)

      • Dwayne Wilkinson

        I believe you Rob… thousands might not though ;)

  • Mitchmoney

    Verizon will defiantly be announcing the galaxy nexus this week. They obviously waited until the droid razr comes out so it doesn’t steal its thunder.. This invite better have a tmobile announcement too! 

    • SavageJeep

      Why is Verizon defiant????? o_O

      • Mitchmoney

        it is confirmed by the samsung VP that verizon will get it because tmobile, sprint, and att got a SGII so the galaxy nexus is theirs..

  • Casey

    It’s got to be google music. The market has been refined to fit it, that has to be it! I’m excited! Death to iTunes! Mwahaha content is king!

    • MagicMiguel

      Yup, the Spinal Tap quote and The Beatles on the building kind of give it away!

  • Wesley

    I’m hoping so much for the Galaxy Nexus to be announced for T-Mo. If, by some small chance, it is, I hope it will work fully on AT&T too, just in case.

  • THenefield

    Google is going to announce acquiring T-Mobile and all T-Mobile phones are getting Ice Cream sandwich starting now

  • THenefield

    Google is announcing their acquisition of T-Mobile and all T-Mobile phones will receive the Ice Cream Sandwich update, including the G1.

    • spicymeatball

      And T-Mobile is going to only carry motorola android phones and tablets.  The new name of the company is called GMotoMobile. ;)

      • Daniel Tiberius

        lol that’d be a disaster

  • MagicMiguel

    The Spinal Tap quote and The Beatles on the building make me think this is a joint Google/T-Mobile music store.

  • Robert Cuthbert

    Google Music service.

  • Jeff432

    Google music would be my guess.

    This definitely isn’t about the Galaxy Nexus.

  • Daniel

    Nexus Tablet?

  • Chris

    I’m in LA if you want me to cover it for you!

      • W!LL

  • The_ATL_Guy

    I do hope its something GN related. A nice music store might be nice. 

  • cwalker31

  • billmayor

    I wonder what happened to the sculptures that were on the front of this building.
    Glad I got a pic sitting next to them before they were removed.
    This building would make cool lofts, if you didnt mind breathing concrete dust from next door.

  • Nudo

    I can’t believe you didn’t know where that quote was from! It’s one of the best ever!
