Google's big October 29th product launches apparently outed

A few days ago, Google sent out invitations to a press event to be held on October 29th in New York City. We noted that this event was happening on the same day as Microsoft's Windows Phone 8 press events in San Francisco and other parts of the world.

Now TheNextWeb.com reports it has information on all of the new product reveals that Google will announce at this October 29th media junket, and quite frankly it sounds pretty impressive, if all of this is true. The story says the information comes from an internal video shown to Google employees.

It's not a surprise to learn that Google is said to be revealing a 32 GB version of its previously released Nexus 7 tablet, made by Asus, at this event. The tablet will be available in both WiFi only and a WiFi/3G version, according to the story. It adds that Google will also reveal a 10 inch tablet, made by Samsung, that has the code name "Manta" but might be called the Nexus 10 when it is actually released.

The Manta will reportedly have a screen resolution of 2560x1600 and 300 PPI, compared to the current iPad which has "just" 264 PPI. The story also reports that Google will reveal the LG Nexus 4 smartphone at the event, with a 4.7 inch 1280x768 display, a quad-core 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 2 GB of RAM and more.

Both the Manta tablet and the LG Nexus 4 will reportedly be running on Android 4.2, which among other new features will allow users to access Google Play downloaded content from a widget and a way for one tablet to be shared by several people who can then access their own emails and apps.
