Watch Matias Duarte On Google+ Today at 4:30 PM EST

Been waiting for someone to pick the brain of the popular Googler, Matias Duarte?  Today at 4:30 PM EST (1:30 PM PST), on The Daily Beast’s Google+ page, you can watch a live hang out where they will be going back and forth with the man behind many of the Ice Cream Sandwich looks we know and love.  In addition, the entire event will be recorded for all those that can’t make it.

When:

December / 7 / 2011 (Today) – 4:30 PM EST (1:30 PM PST)

Where:

Daily Beast Google+ Page

If you are not able to catch the live action but still want to go back and watch, The Daily Beast will also be recording the event for later viewing on their G+ page.  Don’t know if they’ll be taking viewer questions, but that would be an added bonus.

    The sheer number of comments – or lack there of – shows people dont give a shizz about this kind of stuff. It is not even story worthy really. It is just a weak garnish to Android.

      this guy actually is pretty important, so I disagree.

    Google doesn’t even increase the hangout limit for one of their own? *sigh*

    Fail……We’re sorry, the hangout looks to be jam-packed already. There’s no more room!

    I’m actually deeply saddened that the first thing people did on DL was fire off questions about the G-Nex and how they are pissed without even to take the time to realize this is a g+ hangout so only 9 people can join.

    With everyone being pissed off at Google about how VZW is botching their phone & to grow a pair it got me thinking. Maybe Google is taking one for the team on this phone. They could as easily just not tried to work w/ VZW on getting this phone on their network like w/ the previous Nexus’. Maybe some of the concessions they are making like the back cover, the two VZW apps, exclusivity at first, etc.. is to ensure that everyone will have the chance to use this Nexus device. And not leave us VZW customers in the cold. We can all get pissed at Google but VZW can cancel this phone at any time. Since this is the first phone since the OG Droid that has been stock(I think so but not sure) & essentially very dev friendly, Google might be trying everything they can to get this phone to us.
     Just something to think about.

      i dont think anybody is really pissed at google… I honestly hope that Matias, in his blunt way, calls out VZW a bit for once, instead of just being the nice guy.

  • Anonymous

    Verizons already made a liar out of Matias when he said that it would be out in November. He will probably defer any questions about the Gnex to Verizon..

  • Anonymous

    I hope someone can ask these three questions:
    1. Cause of delay be specific.

    2. Beyond removing native tethering support, blocking Google Wallet, and the addition of Verizon apps behind the system directory, please list any patent or latent changes Verizon has had Google and Samsung make to the device and software that differ from AOSP ICS.

    3. Will the Verizon G-Nex need to go through the 1-3 months of “carrier lab certification ” before the

      Damn good questions Droosh..

      These are absolutely fantastic questions. I say we all break into Verizon stores and spraypaint them everywhere.

  • Anonymous

    What if this whole “delay” thing is just Matias trolling us so that he can announce the Galaxy Nexus himself? And it’s going to be available in stores immediately!

    *sigh*

      would be amazing but completely unlikely VZ will make the announcement not him on g+

    • http://twitter.com/benb007 Ben Baker

      Actually, that would be really cool.  A developer oriented phone announced by a developer. Would love to see that.

  • EC8CH

    Wonder what they’re going to talk about?

  • Anonymous

    The only question in the interview is “doesn’t Google have enough balls to stand up to Verizon?”  The response will either reveal that the delay is Verizon’s fault (due to either greed or stupidity) or that for some reason Google is trying to fix something.

      Perhaps it’s the micro SIM card issue that is plaguing the East coast at the moment. Just a guess.

          Good point.

            I’d like to think this would have been spotted and cleared up well before today, but who knows. I’m holding onto my “Matias was trolling us all day with the delay rumors, and is going to announce the phone live at 4:30″ theory (which, of course, i recognize is complete BS, but makes me feel a little warm inside).

        why should that stop the launch though? “Hey, here’s your phone. So ya know, we’ve been having some issues with the SIM, you might have some problems connecting to 4G, but we’re working on it! Enjoy your Galaxy Nexus”… i dont understand why that would make a difference, but I”m probably missing something obvious lol

          Good question, but I have no idea. I try not to question the things big corporations do just because the answer doesn’t make much sense to begin with. *coughqwikstercough*

    I feel terrible for the guy. He is likely to be bombed with GN questions, despite the fact that he has absolutely nothing to do with the release. The guy makes huge sweeping improvements to the OS, but no one in the US can enjoy it yet.

    • http://twitter.com/benb007 Ben Baker

      Yeah, today is really a terrible day for him to be out there.  Google, Samsung and Verizon are really not looking solid today.

    • Anonymous

      I do too. However, it wouldn’t happen if the company he represents wasn’t so silent on these issues. Hell, it was Matias himself that said it would come out in the USA in November at the latest during his interview with the Verge.

    • John

      He knows he may get asked about it. All he is going to say is “it’s in verizon’s hands now”

  • http://twitter.com/icecolddemon Phil Oakley

    Hmm…hope this isn’t too late for me to watch it…I love Matias’ style of speaking, so natural and casual, yet engaging at the same time.

  • http://twitter.com/zero_cool96 Nick

    just what i need to hear. more info about an OS and phone that i have yet to use in person

  • Chris G

    How about getting Matias to answer why VZ has completely F’d up the Galaxy Nexus and then telling Google, we don’t care about their wantabe facebook until after we have the GNexus.

    Google.  You’re bigger and better than Verizon.  Start standing up for your customers and black and blue big red.

        Actually, that is a pretty good idea.  Nationwide google-fueled wifi…  I dig.  And if there is one company that would benefit and have the capabilities to do it, it would be the goog.
