Android 4.2, Key Lime Pie Release Date Set for Oct. 29

The Android 4.2, Key Lime Pie release date could be as early as Oct. 29, as Google sent out invitations to a media event where the software is expected to be unveiled.

This event will take place in New York City at 10:00 a.m. and will be streamed live on YouTube.

Google is expected to introduce the new LG Nexus 4 smartphone which will most likely run the new build of Android, Key Lime Pie.

The company will probably speak about the Nexus Q streaming device that it pulled off shelves earlier this year in hopes of perfecting it. Google also might announce the 32GB variant of the Nexus 7 tablet at the event.

This model showed up on the Staples Advantage website for business customers earlier this week.

The listing was reported by AndroidPolice earlier today, where it can be found for purchase at $250.

The device is priced slightly less than the 16GB model, showing that the 32GB version might be its permanent replacement.

The device was also recently discovered in a listing at a Carphone Warehouse store in the U.K. Shortly after it was found, a few Droid Life readers reported that they found the tablet in the retailer's purchasing system.

The device was priced at $259.92. The reader also reported that his reseller is expecting shipments of the 32GB Nexus 7 some time around Oct. 24, and called it a "special model."

Google could be releasing this version in order to better compete with the new Amazon Kindle Fire HD and the next-generation Nook tablet.

After a strong debut from Apple's iPhone 5, Google needs to get people talking again.
