Do not get confused with I/O. It is not Apple's iOS. It is Google's I/O. I/O stands for both Input/Output and Innovation in the Open. It is Google's annual meeting, which is a developer focused conference. Google I/O includes highly technical, in-depth sessions focused on building web, mobile, and enterprise applications with Google and open web technologies. This year, the I/O will be taking place on 15th May, at San Francisco, USA.
San Francisco's Moscone Center has been a vital place for Apple as most of its major major keynotes were hosted there. But, it is being the center of attraction as Google's I/O is about to take place there. From 15 to 17 this month, the place is gonna be under constant lime light. The last I/O meeting has given us Jelly Bean 4.1, Project Butter, Google Now, Chrome for iOS, the Nexus 7 and Project Glass.
Lets now check what are this years I/O's expectations.
1.Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie :
The next version of Android will the show stopper of I/O for sure. The world has been awaiting long for the Key Lime Pie version of Android. By the releasing of it, Google will be putting an end to the chain of rumours. We have already heard that the next Motorola device- the Motorola X phone will be having this updated version of Android.
Google Babble is the unique messaging system that has been said to be the next project of Google for a while by now. There were leaks about this system and according to the reports, there are chances that Google might introduce it on the I/O. The Google Babble will be a system that blends together Chat, Talk, Voive and Google Plus facilities under one roof. The recent rumours about Google's new policy against whatsapp points to the possibility of such a feature. This will bring Google one more step near to Apple's iMessage.
3.New Nexus 7 Tablet:
There is no need to raise your eye brows. We know that Nexus 7 was Google's project announced in the last I/O of 2012. they had successfully released it at a very reasonable price too. This time, the new Nexus 7 is expected to be one among the stars of the show. This new tablet is expected to have a super high resolution and a faster quad core Qualcomm chips et. The device is expected to have a budget friendly price tag.
4.Motorola X Phone:
Motorola X phone is the next gadget. We have heard enough rumour about Motorola X Phone. This will be the first Motto phone with Google's collaboration. There are chances that the device will feature the newest operating system form Google- the Key Lime Stone.
5.Google Game Center:
We are quite familiar with the Game Centre of Apple iOS. Its ability to bring together and unite iPhone, iPad and iPod touch gamers and simplify multi player gaming across these devices is really an innovative idea. There are rumours that Google is under the making of such a feature. There are no confirmations about this so far. There are chances that this could remain only as a rumour.
There have been enough demos, videos and official spec release about the Google's smart glass. Those who laughed at such an idea would be trying hard to cover their face it seems. Though the company succeeded in giving enough publicity, there are no confirmation about its world wide release to the retailing shops. We hope that this will happen at the I/O.
These are some of the announcements we are expecting to get from the I/O of 2013. If you have some more expectations or suggestions, please do write down those in the comment box given below. We will be updating you about the I/O as soon as they start it off.
