Time to pack it in folks... Nothing to see here.
[Update - 7:12 PM] The event should be underway now, but according to Geek.com writer Russell Hollyís post over on this Reddit thread, all this online hubub might be over nothing:
Nothing is happening tonight. There will be no live stream, no press conference, nothing. No one is coming out on stage with a mystery device in their pocket, and no one that I know has been given a N5 or N10 for review yet. For your information, while we do occasionally get those before they are available for sale we do not get them before they are announced.
I didnít break an NDA. The Google Play team didnít think I would react the way I did when I got the invitation, and neglected to include some kind of note asking me not to share it. I caused that team a lot of headaches this past week as a result. It was a communication error, and I jumped the gun. End of story, I promise.
Itís been a long month, and we donít have too much longer to wait if what I am hearing is true. Iím sorry I screwed up and got everyoneís hopes up, and Iím pissed that I have to apologize because Iím just as excited about this phone as everyone else, but please take my word for it. Nothing is going to happen tonight.
I know, I know. ďWhy book Capital Cities?Ē
To be honest, I donít have the answer to that. Big companies hire bands for small events all the time, and usually it really is because reasons. The price was right, the band was available, and thatís all she wrote. It happens, and it isnít indicative of anything.
So there you have it. Weíll keep our eyes out for a live stream juuuust in case, but it might be best not to get your hopes up.
