Googler debunks the new Nexus program and Android 4.2 rumors with "LOL", source apologizes

many other rumored features. Google's Dan Morill, however, took to G+ yesterday, and enigmatically wrote: "Reading rumor sites.... LOL," leaving everybody in an even more frenzied mode. Well, the source of these rumors actually apologized for not confirming them with multiple sources, so we now know what he meant:Well, that, and
The "Hoaxer" himself added what's still possible, and what he made up:
It was a sweet rumor while it lasted, which, of course, doesn't preclude seeing an LG Optimus G Nexus soon with an updated Android 4.2 onboard, it's just that the scope of the Nexus overhaul might be less ambitious than what we hoped for. We'll know more when Andy Rubin takes the stages at the AllThingD: conference later this month to talk about Nexus-y stuff.

No need to hope - Google always announces exciting things.. Unlike another company I can think of. :)

I do vaguely remember seeing a few people at the local Starbucks talking about some other brand. I didn't really pay much attention to it because they were talking about "revolutionary" features I've known about for years now. Lol. Joking aside, I too am looking forward to the month of November.

All he said was "Reading rumor sites.... LOL" How is that debunking anything? There are plenty of unreliable rumor sites out their with ridiculous information on them. I'm not indicating whether these rumors are true or not, but I don't see how his statement debunks anything.

You're right, the comment was just a comment - it's obvious what he was talking about but it wasn't the debunking. The debunking was exposed by the hoaxer here:http://www.androidpolice.com/2

The customization center is one rumor they should turn into reality. Personally, I'm hoping they wait to debut a new nexus device with the A15 cores, seeing as how I think thats what phones next year are gonna be gravitating towards.
