Google Holding Mobile Event Today

Google is going to be holding an event today in their San Francisco offices at 12PM PST (9PM British Time), where they are going to be “unveiling a couple of cool new mobile features”. The last time they held an event similar to this, they unveiled Google Navigation, which was a great addition to Android. So hopefully they will announce something on par with Google Nav.

The event could be the unveiling of the Google music service which we’ve been expecting since Google I/O. And if this is indeed what is being announced today, it will be the first step for Google to take a bite out of Apple’s music business, (No pun intended!) and could convert iPhone users locked in the iTunes universe to Android. However, I do not think that it will be the launch of Android 3.0. Mainly because it is to soon after 2.2 was announced at Google I/O.

There are some rumours floating around of them releasing the Nexus Two with Gingerbread 3.0, but again, this is probably not going to happen as we would of seen some sort of leak by now.
