Google announces press gathering on January 5th – Hello, Nexus One.


There have been whispers around the rumor mill for roughly a week now that Google was planning on throwing a press shindig right before CES – and sure enough, the invites just went out.

Google’s not saying much about the event, outside of the fact that it’s focused on Android — but really, what do they need to say? Google’s Nexus One handset has been given to employees, documented from just about every angle, spec’d out, and confirmed by T-Mobile; at this point, the press conference is a formality.

Either way, expect the TechCrunch network to be there with cameras in hand and live-blogging on the mind.
