Google I/O to focus on developers, not new products or Key Lime Pie
Sundar Pichai, head of Chome and Android at Google, has revealed what to expect from Google I/O 2013, starting on 15 May in San Francisco.
The Google convention acts as a stage from which Google can "inspire" (its words) or share the latest on everything in the Googleverse.
With plenty of rumour and speculation surrounding the conference, the Pichai interview in Wired suggests that Google I/O will focus on just that, rather than be a launch platform for the Nexus 5, a Full HD Nexus 7 or the latest Motorola XFON.
"It's not a time when we have much in the way of launches of new products or a new operating system. Both on Android and Chrome, we’re going to focus this I/O on all of the kinds of things we’re doing for developers, so that they can write better things," said Pichai.
"We will show how Google services are doing amazing things on top of these two platforms."
That might be because we recently saw the launch of the Chromebook Pixel and the Nexus 4 and Nexus 10 having been in the market only since October 2012.
Also rife has been speculation over the launch of Key Lime Pie, the next big update to Android. However, it's looking like there will be an incremental step to Android 4.3 before that, if the hits we've been getting on the Pocket-lint servers are anything to go by.
We're sure Google will have something exciting to share at Google I/O, but it may have more of an impact on the Google products you currently have, rather than the next big thing.
We will keep you posted.
