Today at 2:40 p.m. Eastern, the Android team will be hosting a live web event to announce the public availability of Android O. The timing of the event coinsides with the solar eclipse that is happening and, you guessed it, will be at its height at 2:40 p.m. in New York.
The stream of the event will be available on YouTube and there will be a live video stream with the launch stream from NASA showing the eclipse. You can watch the stream below:
Yeah, so my opinion is go outside and see the eclipse (with proper eye protection of course). That’s a rare event and while I’m a big fan of the ‘Droid, I think the timing of this is silly at best and marketing gone array at worst. My .02. And to top it off, there isn’t really anything outside of the official name that we don’t already know about Android O anyway at this point.
