Google I/O – Rumors/Expectations

Like any other Google fanboy, I am looking forward to Google I/O this year, which starts on May 15.
Since I follow tons of tech news websites, I constantly am flooded with rumors of what people are expecting at Google I/O. So, I decided to combine all the rumors and expectations in one place.

So, here we go…

Nexus 7
People are expecting a new Nexus 7 tablet this year with upgraded specs, but probably at the same price. Rumors are that it will sport a 1920×1200 resolution, 5-megapixel rear camera, faster Qualcomm processor and wireless charging.

Google Play Games
This is new! I just heard that Google has been working on Play Games for some time and might launch it this summer. It supposedly includes multiplayer support, in-game chat, leaderboards, lobbies and achievements.

Google Babel/Hangout
This is one of the features that I desperately want and have been wanting for quite a long time, since I use GTalk, Google Voice and Google+. It would be nice to see all these services combined into one app.

Android 5.0
Another thing that I am excited about! It’s been quite some time since Google came out with a new OS (well, not really long time) and I am hoping to get my hands on this shiny new OS soon!

Google Glass
Google previewed a developer version of Glass last year. Hopefully, they will make it open for public this year.

Nexus 4, 5 and Motorola Phone
Nearly every Google fanboy heard of Google buying out Motorola last year. But what about a Google-Motorola phone? When are they coming out with one? Hopefully this I/O?

We will just have to wait and see what gets launched and what remains a rumor. Only 2 days left. Be excited.
