Live stream: Watch Google launch the Nexus 7 2 and Android 4.3 here

Google's head of Android, Sundar Pichai, is hosting a special breakfast event over in San Francisco today, and needless to say we're intrigued by the possibilities.

Above, you'll find a live stream of Sundar's über-geeky coffee morning, and you can also follow the action via our Google Nexus 7 2 and Android 4.3 launch live blog.

For sure, the smart money is on Google launching the second-generation Nexus 7, which is expected to come running a refreshed OS, Android 4.3.

The Nexus 7 was a real game-changer when it arrived back in July 2012, shaking up the consumer electronics landscape to the point that there's now nary a manufacturer not flirting with devices in the 6in to 8in range.

To find out what made Google's 7in mini-tablet so great, hark back to our Nexus 7 review. Or, to get an idea of what can we look forward to with Android 4.3, check out our Android 4.3 wishlist as a starting point.

Will the new Nexus 7 arrive today? Is Android 4.3 going to be a significant improvement over 4.2.2 Jelly Bean? And has Best Buy spoiled all the fun by leaking key Nexus 7 2 specs ahead of the big launch?
