Google's annual developer conference is just 7 weeks away. What do you expect to see and more importantly what do you WANT to see announced?
Typing 'io 2013 rumours' (or similar) into Google brings up a raft of topics..... Here are just some of the rumours currently doing the rounds:
Key Lime Pie (Android 5)
A year since 4.1, could it be time for the release of 5.0? But how will it improve on 4.2?
After seeing those recent Google Glass videos i'd love to see more
Motorola X Phone
Since Google purchased Motorola rumours have persisted about the "X Phone", could we see something?
Nexus 5 Phone
The camera is pretty poor on the N4 compared to high end shooters, could LG be delivering a sucessor to the N4 so soon?
Nexus 7 HD Tablet
Google announced the Nexus 7 at last years IO, so time to upgrade the tablet with a HD screen?
More improvements on Googles answer to Siri?
Google TV / Nexus Q
Something in the TV/streaming space?
An app that unifies Talk, Messenger, Voice, Hangouts etc
Released the other week, maybe some emphasis on it and how it integrates into KLP?
After the release of the Chromebook Pixel, rumours abound that Android and ChromeOS could merge or at the least share functionality
A new midrange Chromebook
Is there a need for a new Chromebook to sit between the £229 ARM device and the £1049 Pixel. The last 'decent' model was the Samsung 550, does that need replacing?
What will the lucky so and so's who grabbed a ticket walk away with this year? :)
So what of the above interests you? What's likely......... or what's just Key Lime Pie in the sky? (sorry, couldn't resist) ;)
Part of me can't see either X Phone or Nexus 5 so soon after the release of the Nexus 4, but you never know. Maybe Google are planning to make I/O the new yearly refresh point for all their hardware?
Anything else you think might be on their agenda?
