Google schedules event for tomorrow… but probably still no Nexus 5

Is Google just playing with us at this point? We’ve been patiently waiting for the Nexus 5 to drop all month, and while there have been plenty of rumors looking at when the phone might actually launch, we just haven’t seen any Google send out invitations for anything that could be considered a Nexus event. Instead, it’s been keeping busy with other projects, leading to events like that October 24 Google Play business in New York. Right now we’re looking for evidence of a possible November 1 launch, yet we continue to learn about new “distractions” from Google, like the event it just announced this afternoon.

You might have seen all the speculation going around today concerning a little Google+ conversation between Vic Gundotra and Sundar Pichai, and references to late night prep work being interpreted as Nexus-5-related. Instead, Gundotra has followed that up by announcing a live broadcast tomorrow to reveal coming changes to Google+.

Of course, we can’t help but wonder about the possibility of some sort of stealth announcement – a real Apple-style “but one more thing…” – pulling the curtain back on the Nexus 5, but in reality that’s probably a huge leap to make.

There’s still the chance that some of this new Google+ stuff could be tied to Android 4.4, and in turn be tangentially related to the Nexus 5 announcement, but given Google’s recent trend away from tying its services to specific Android releases, we wouldn’t bet on it, either.
