Hi, everyone! Welcome to CNET's live blog of Google's 'Breakfast with Sundar Pichai' event!
I'll be hosting you until the event gets underway at 9am PT.
Right now our CNET team of Jessica Dolcourt, Seth Rosenblatt, and James Martin are waiting to enter the breakfast in SF's Dogptach neighborhood. Once they get in and set up, they'll take over to bring you the news and sights.
@George: I'm not sure, but Seth and Jessica will let us know.
@Eric: The event begins in less than half an hour...at 9:00 am Pacific Time.
@Howie: Or maybe, Key Lime Pie.
Already, the revamped Nexus 7 has leaked. We expected at least that from this event, but there should be more. Possibilities include an Android OS update (Google I/O did not deliver that this year).
Hey everyone! We're settling in at this event space. We're seated at round white tables and there is actually a really nice breakfast bar.
Another thing that I/O didn't give us this year was a new Nexus device. That seems unlikely here, but you never know.
I'm seeing coffee in fluted glasses and we're listening to some easy listening alt rock.
@AndrewC: Good question: The Moto X may very well be a Nexus-y device. It will be revealed next Thursday (Aug. 1) at an event in NY.
@Eric: About an hour, I would guess. Maybe longer. But we'll be here through the whole thing to bring you the story.
Rest assured that the feed will start when the event begins. Right now, people are still gathering in the room and getting their breakfast.
We're still sitting here waiting for things to happen. Right now it looks like some Google people are congregating.
We've moved from easy listening rock to Beck's Devil's Haircut. I heartily approve.
Nothing from Glass expected.
@Alex: personally, I doubt it. Sundar is Google's Android chief, so the focus should remain there.
It's like he's in the future!!!
However, I did see a journalist here who's *wearing* Google Glass...
I'm hoping that in addition to the Nexus 7 and Android 4.3, we'll also see the Nexus 5. Who's with me?
@Muhammad: Hello, opposite side of the world!
It's a pretty small, cozy group. You know, just about 100 journalists, hanging out, having breakfast with Sundar.
It appears Google is having technical issues with the live stream. Hopefully, they'll sort out the problem soon so please be patient.
I personally think it's a little weird to seat blogging journalists at round tables. At least 1/4 of them are going to have their backs to the stage, or else will have to twist awkwardly or just blog from their laps. Not good.
@Bhavik I would be surprised if we didn't get a new Chromebook... possibly a Chrome tablet.
