Other rumors include the first demonstration of the latest iteration of Android 4.2, or Key Lime Pie as it is being called. A hoaxer successfully managed to fool a number of tech journalists at the start of October, convincing them not only that its launch was imminent but that it would contain a raft of brand new features. However, although server records show that Android 4.2 does exist, it is most likely to be a minor upgrade that irons some of the bugs out of Jelly Bean (Android 4.1, available since July 2012) and will be optimized for running on the 10-inch tablet.
What won't be on show is a Nexus phone from Sony. When pictures of it first appeared on October 13 on a number of photo sharing sites, it generated a lot of blog posts and column inches. It, like the fully revised version of Android, has been revealed to be a hoax. However, the Nexus G, a Google Android handset based on the LG Optimus G, will be officially unveiled.
