It’s going to be a busy week in the tech world. This time next week, Microsoft will unzip its trousers and waggle Windows Phone 8 in front of the world, but before then we’ve got Windows 8, the iPad mini and Google’s end-of-week Android event. And guess what: we know exactly what Google’s about to unleash.

A source close to Google has revealed all to The Next Web. Those boys are pretty certain of their report, and – in fairness – it all seems entirely possible based on previous rumours.

First up, Google’s going to unveil two new Nexus 7 iterations. Both new tabs will boast 32GB of storage, and one will sport 3G connectivity. Excitingly, that’s not the only tablet action; the big G is also reported to have a Samsung-made 10-inch tablet up its sleeves.

Codenamed ‘Manta’, the 10-inch tab is set to have an iPad-beating 2560×1600 pixel resolution at 400ppi.

That Galaxy Nexus is looking a bit long in the tooth now, so it’s just as well Google’s got a replacement ready. As has been rumoured, it seems that LG is providing the next Nexus, to be named the LG Nexus 4. It’ll be a very similar beast to the LG Optimus G, in as much as it’ll sport a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor with 2GB of RAM behind a 4.7-inch display.

And, finally, what would a Google event be without an update to Android? We’re now expecting Android 4.2 – an evolutionary change that’ll still bear the ‘Jelly Bean’ monicker. Changes include improvements to the stock camera suite, as well as the ability for tablet users to keep and access multiple accounts on one device – making Android better suited for families.

Stay tuned for the full, official lowdown on Friday.
