Google is hosting a press event tomorrow, and while we'll definitely see some Honeycomb action, the buzz is focused on two other possible announcements.

According to Android and Me and "a regular source who has provided accurate information" in the past, Google is planning to unveil the browser-based Android Market, which is touted as "on par with that of the Apple App Store or even better." Let's hope so. Maybe this is why Google is looking to hire more mobile app developers!

On top of that, we might even see an announcement regarding the cloud-based Google Music service, which will probably try to compete with iTunes and even Sony's Qriocity Music Unlimited. As reported by BusinessWeek, Google has apparently been hard at work at securing rights from at least four major music labels. If all goes to plan, Google Music users will be able to upload music libraries to Google's servers to be synced with any mobile device.

Well that last part definitely sounds useful. Is there any part of our lives that will remain untouched by Google?
