The invites are out: Google's Nexus and Android 6.0 event scheduled for Sep 29

We've known for some time that Google has been working on two new flagship-class Nexus phones - 'hero' devices for Android 6.0 Marshmallow, the next major update to its popular OS. And now, at long last, we know when they'll be officially unveiled.

Google sent out invitations today for an event to be held in San Francisco on September 29, precisely matching a report that accurately predicted that date earlier this month. In case you need any clearer confirmation that the invite is indeed for the Android event, look no further than the text on the invite: "Join us for some tasty new treats and much s'more." *groan*

Android 6.0 Marshmallow has been available in preview form for several months now, and we already know a great deal about the two new Nexus handsets, after a flurry of recent leaks. Indeed, earlier today, a report revealed yet another detail about the devices, claiming that they are to be called the 'Nexus 5X' and 'Nexus 6P'.

And another cat may have slipped out of Google's bag yesterday, as a new version of its Chromecast dongle was supposedly revealed in leaked images.

Whether or not the company has any surprises left for its event remains to be seen - but with just over a week to go, at least there's not too long to wait.
