We’re live at Google’s Nexus 7 and Android 4.3 event — where to watch it online at 9am Pacific

Here’s just a quick reminder to let you folks know that we’re on the ground in San Francisco, and we’ll be making our way to Google’s venue in just a couple of short hours to take in the exciting announcements we’re expecting to hear today. One of the announcements will be for the new Nexus 7 refresh. We won’t have to wait that long to pre-order it, though, as Best Buy has already put the device up on its website.

With that, we’re also expecting to hear about the latest version of Android — 4.3. It’s coming pre-installed on the new Nexus 7, so Google is sure to detail it for us once the event kicks off. You’ll want to set your reminders for 9am pacific, which is noon eastern, to make sure you don’t miss out on our live coverage.

And if you’re capable and willing to follow along, don’t forget there is a live stream you can access. We have that embedded for you above, or you can watch it directly on YouTube. No matter how you choose to follow the event, don’t forget to stop by Phandroid afterward for all of the video coverage you can handle. Buckle up your seat belts!

    The Nexus 7 won’t be better than my Original Galaxy Tab running Gingerbread… It’s so sleek and the screen even tho heavily pixelated is so clear and crisp. It only stutters once ever 20 mins… This Nexus 7 is a joke

    • dreadnatty08

      You missed the /s.

      • toomuchgame441

        No I haven’t, my Galaxy Tab has replaced my MacBook Pro

        Look back into his posting history. The guy is just trying to cause trouble and insult people.

        • OptimusKLP

          He’s been trolling G+, Android and ME and Android Central (i think).

      • toomuchgame441

        If I were Yarrell I’d be talking about how the HtC EVO 4G is the best device ever created

        • Matthew Rhodes

          Hey Now! I Still have the HTC EVO 4G! It was awesome when it came out.

    You mad bro?

  • Anthony McKay

    So Google.. why don’t you show us some Nexus 5 cleavage huh?.. ^_^

    • NexusKoolaid

      +1, but probably won’t happen – they won’t want to steal the Moto X thunder.

      • Anthony McKay

        Lol I honestly don’t expect there to be.. Just like I don’t expect to come home one day to 3 hot Asian females having a pillow fight on my bed, but I always hope there is!

  • Max

    I wonder how much Best buy would have to pay for this “leak” if it concerned an Apple product :)

  • Suleeto

    Seriously? I own an original P1000 G-Tab 7 and in NO way does it come close to even the first Nexus 7 tablet.

  • Mitchmoney

    for some reason, I’m not very pumped up for this release as I was for the past events :/

  • JRomeo

    This Google Event will be bigger and better than the Google I/O Event………. is it ironic that breakfast with Sundar Pichai is a bigger deal than the Google I/O ?

  • Adil Qamar

    It’s live. But nothing is happening lol

    • Robin Jo Justus

      looking at this google logo is really fascinating :D

  • Tony Lai

    I already find this lady talker not appealing… they need a new spokeswoman!

  • Mike Smyth

    Does anyone know what software they are using for the presentation?

  • Tony Lai

    Chromecast is awesome!

  • Ankur Patel

    Google blew a tech world today with unbelievable breakthrough addressing a piece of platform and language independent technology. A pure human friendly technology.

  • Ankur Patel

    All I say, Google flushes Apple’s dreams today in no time.

  • Tony Lai

    Chromecast $35, omg, i was expecting somewhere close to $100.

    • https://plus.google.com/108596272537415356460/posts Jason Farrell

      I was guessing $79. Glad to be wrong. Picking up two.

  • Bizzle9

    If “Chromecast” doesn’t play your stored local content, isn’t this just another AppleTV situation?

    • https://plus.google.com/108596272537415356460/posts Jason Farrell

      I’m hopeful that it can stream from the LAN too. Shouldn’t be too hard to have a dlna or samba app cast it.

      • Bizzle9

        I’ll pretend to be an optimist and dream that dream.

        • https://plus.google.com/108596272537415356460/posts Jason Farrell

          Or… maybe the serverside has to support the new API, so a simple dlna server won’t work, and you’d need an something more (like a new app for my Synology diskstation)

          • Bizzle9

            I think an app like BubbleUPNP or iMediaShare could implement a connection to the Chromecast. However, then you have the Airplay problem. Your phone/tablet would be doing all the heavy lifting (decoding/streaming). Both picture quality and battery life would take a huge hit in that scenario.

            I’d prefer UPNP/DLNA support, but it just feels unlikely.

  • Anthony Tran

    Wow, everyone was expecting 4.3 and N7, then Google blows everyone away with Chromecast for THIRTY-FIVE dollars. Holy crap.
