New nexus 10 hopefully. haha.. and perhaps the rumoured nexus 8 would be a good addition - please have HTC build this. I am surprised as to why Google hasnt asked HTC to build the next nexus phone. The build quality that HTC has is out of this world and much better than LG's I reckon.

Or lollipop, Lemon meringue pie, or L&P (to be world famous in more than NZ).

So just called Android L at the moment. Quite like the interface. Not quite so sure about the ever increasing push toward card based notifications.
And the Samsung watch due soon. I wonder whether it will be galaxy only again, or if that is verboten for a device running wear.
HTC have already announced they will be upgrading both Ones (M7 and M8) within 90 days of L's release. The release slated for (our) Spring, so Christmas for HTC to push to GPE and another 3 months to carrier devices makes March 2015.

I like the watches.

So the G watch and Gear Live are going to be $US230 and $US200 respectively. And the Moto 360 rumoured to be $US350. It will be interesting to see what they retail for here (if they ever get here). The samsung offering is probably the only one that will come here (excl parallel imports) and I reckon they will retail it for $399.

While a lot of the things look pretty cool in a connected city like San Francisco I wonder how effective things like Android TV and Car will be in this corner of the world.

No Nexus devices, but I guess they are going to be part of the release of 'L' in a couple of months.

As ha been noted by more than one commentator, no mention of the previous year's headliners, Glass and Google+.

I'm loving the look of these Android Wear devices.  Apple need to do something pretty special to make me not pick up a Moto 360 or similar next year.  For now I'm still super happy with my Pebble.

Or L  = Roman 50 so maybe Android 5.0  ??
