Watch today's Pocketnow Daily as we talk about the recent leaks of the Google Nexus 10, which now include actual photos of the device. Then we talk about Android 4.2 and the possible additions that we might receive on Monday October 29th. We later talk about the iPad pre-orders and how they've been performing after the Apple Online Store opened again. We then move to Xbox Smart Glass now reaching Android customers for free. We end today's show by talking about our unboxing and first impressions of the Microsoft Surface with Windows RT. All this and more after the break.

Shortly after Jelly Bean arrived, we started hearing about the possibility of multi-user support finally coming to Android, with news that the groundwork for such a system was already in place. Indeed, it wasn't long before we saw some custom ROMs start tapping in to the system hooks for the feature, giving us an early look at how it might work. Chances are looking good that Google will announce Android 4.2 next Monday, and if this screenshot isn't fake, that could mark the arrival of Android's full-fledged multi-user mode. This image comes to us from a comment thread to a post on this ...

It seems like just yesterday that we were getting our first taste of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, now we're being teased with the Nexus 4, the Nexus 10, and the potential for a whole bunch of Nexi smartphones being announced in a few days. In the past, Google has used a highly public launch event to announce (though not necessarily release) a new version of the Android Operating System. Usually Google releases their new product running the new operating system on it, and it's usually not too long after the big event. This time around we're hearing rumors that the Nexus 4 will be available ...

We've already heard some very detailed rumors of what Google may have planned for its October 29 event, including everything from the LG Nexus 4, to a ten-inch Nexus tablet, to a 32GB Nexus 7, and even Android 4.2. We could listen to such rumors all day, but ultimately, they're just that: rumors. Well, this may not be official word from on high, but the closest thing to confirmation to cross our path yet has just surfaced, with an LG exec talking about what we can expect from Google's event. Amit Gujral, Head of Mobile Devices & VAS for LG in India, recently said in an interview, ...

There are lots of speculations regarding Google's October 29 event. You can clearly see in the invite that there are four towers to the left in blue and two on the right in red, which could easily indicate Android 4.2, rumored to be called Key Lime Pie (or something else starting with the 'K'). What exactly will Android 4.2 bring to the table is yet unknown but there are reports of multiple user account support, improved security, new Gmail, better settings, etc. TNW reports we can expect " ‘Content in the center,’ which will allow users to access Play Store content from a widget and ...

While the first leaked pics we saw of the LG Nexus 4 revealed the handset to be running Android 4.1.2, apparently some of these in-testing units feature Android 4.2 instead, and the guys at Android Police managed to get themselves a copy of just such a ROM. As they look through it, they're revealing some of the new changes in store for us, and today take a look at a new "Quick Settings" interface. This is clearly a work in progress, as spelled-out by the image above. That's an actual file from the 4.2 dump, included as a placeholder graphic until the code is complete. Android Police asked ...

Late last week, I wrote about some of newest rumors to surface regarding Google's next Android iteration. If you haven't been keeping up with the news, since then the majority of that information has been identified as the work of a hoaxster; don't expect Project Roadrunner to bring enhanced battery life, nor Google Play to implement new streaming options. I could wring my hands in frustration over that turn of events, but why bother? Rumors always carry the risk of being false, and even when that turns out to be the case, they can still get us thinking about some important topics; maybe ...

We know, Jelly Bean seems like it was only just announced, and chances are your phone doesn't even run it yet, but word on the street is that Android 4.2 is already just around the corner, likely to be revealed alongside Google's expected Nexus device announcement. As we wait for official word of the new build, rumors attempt to identify a few key features we'll be seeing, and server log analysis reveals a couple new pieces of hardware that could arrive running the new platform. Supposedly, Android 4.2 would introduce some new features unique to Google's Nexus devices, including the ...
