Android L could launch November 1st
Although the next-gen Nexus devices are expected to launch mid-October, Android L could launch a bit later - on November 1st, if the latest rumors prove to be true. While the arrival of the HTC Nexus 9 on October 16 has not been officially confirmed yet, Paul O'Brien got his info from a trustworthy anonymous insider and so this event is very likely to happen as rumored.
Android Authority got fresh information from two inside sources familiar with this matter who revealed that HTC Nexus 9 will be unveiled on the 15th or 16th of October. Google Android L is expected to be officially available two weeks later. Nexus devices usually ship with a new Android release as well, so it is very likely to see the new hardware unveiled as mentioned above. Then, shipments should begin as soon as Android L gets officially launched.
All the above should be taken with a grain of salt for the time being, but we will get back to Android L and the next-gen Nexus devices as soon as we hear more about them. Until then, feel free to enjoy the developer preview in the movie below.
