Apple may be planning to hold a media event at the end of January. Citing sources familiar with the plans, AllThingsD reveals that the event will take place in New York City and will not be hardware-oriented. This means it won't be for unveiling the iPad 3 or the much rumored Apple TV.
LG Mobile has sent out invitations today to a special launch event that it's hosting on December 1 in New York City.

It's the biggest Google developer event of the year, Google IO, and it feels like we were just there, but next year's dates have been announced already! The 2012 Google IO event will be taking place on April 24th through the 25th and will be housed at the fabulous Moscone Center West in San Francisco, California. Heat! Bring your Easter baskets and put those Android bunny ears on because by that time, it'll be a whole different game on the mobile operating system front for the big G.

Invites have been sent out to those considered worthy of attending what may well be the biggest event in the shared history of Samsung and Google, one taking place LIVE from Hong Kong, China.

One way or another, the 19th of October, Hong Kong (and the 18th of October, USA, for those that understand time zones,) will be the date of the big Samsung Unpacked event that was cancelled last week. Can you even contain your excitement at a time like this?!
This week we've been invited by HP to participate in their very first Making of Elite Tour. This tour is one where we get to see many moments in the process between HP creating a device in their Elite line and getting it ready for store shelves. That said, it was pretty obvious right off the bat what the first question on everybody's mind would be given the recent news HP had for the world regarding the very sector of HP that we were about to dive into. Public Relations head Mike Hockey knew the situation and gave us a once-over before the questions were even asked.

Stick with us here on SlashGear for the full experience - for now though, look at this fabulous presentation of information we've got right off the bat!

Apple's fall event for unveiling new iPods usually takes place in the beginning of September, but there are reports that this year's event could pull the curtains back on the iPhone 5 instead.

Samsung is hosting an unusual press event in NYC on August 3. And we say unusual, because it's not common to see events like these in celebration of a software update. But this one is to unveil a major update to Samsung's TouchWiz UX for the Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet. The event will be held at the Samsung Experience center in NYC, where it will open to the press in the morning and then to the general public in the afternoon.
