Google’s annual developer conference, Google I/O, is just few days away. It begins on Wednesday, May 15 and ends on Friday, May 17. In the mean time let’s have a look at what to expect from the geeky guys at Google.
5. Nexus Q
We might see a new Nexus Q, still in the shape of Ball but with high-end features. The new Nexus Q may wirelessly connect Android devices to your big-screen TV. It may also play Movies, Music and YouTube from android devices.
4. Chrome Dongle
We expect the presence of Chrome OS at I/O this year. There are rumors regarding the introduction Chrome Dongle, which you may use to run a Chrome OS on almost every device. Just Plug-in and start using Chrome OS.
3. Google Glass
Of Course Google Glass will be all over this year’s Google I/O. More possibilities of Google Glass might be revealed and we might see more ways of making the most out of it, but it is certain we will have a deep look at Google Glass and the functions it can perform. We highly expect that it will get officially announced as consumer product and will be available for sale, few months after the conference.
2. Nexus 7 Successor
The next Nexus 7 is expected to be announced at Google I/O 2013. It is rumored that the new Nexus 7 will have a 1920 x 1200 display and a Snapdragon 600 Chip. There are also huge chances that it will be featuring its own Retina display. It is rumored to have obviously a faster processor and a 2 GB memory. Other features are expected to be Wireless charging, a LTE option, and a 5 Megapixel rear camera. The price could be between $249 to $299 which is still less than Apple’s non-retina iPad mini, which is priced at $329.
1. Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie/4.3 Jelly Bean
This is perhaps the biggest expectation from this year’s developer conference. We have been noticing number of hearsays about the new Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie from various sources in the last 4-5 months. Recent rumors also suggest that instead of Key Lime Pie, Android 4.3 Jelly Bean might get unveiled. The next version of Android will, in spades provides some resplendent and handy features, such as, Unified messaging, Google play news, Google gaming center and certain improvements to other already present services by Google. Whether we see Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie or Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, we will for certain see immense improvements in the operating system.
