The Google I/O event will debut in a couple of hours and most of you will probably want to watch it live. Well, we have good news for you as the Google I/O 2013 Live Stream is now up and running on YouTube and any of you can watch it.
The Mountain View-based company has managed to transform an event that used to be exclusively for developers into an event that aims at both developers and tech enthusiasts. For this reason the Google I/O live stream is open for anyone who is eager to watch it.
What should we expect from the Google I/O event? Well there are a lot of speculations regarding the new products that will be unveiled at Google I/O 2013 with some sources saying that the Nexus 5 and Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie will be introduced at the San Francisco-based event. In my opinion we will not see any of the aforementioned products at this year’s Google I/O edition.
Reports are indicating that Google is currently testing Android 4.3 Jelly Bean on several Nexus devices, thus we will receive another Jelly Bean flavored version instead of the highly-anticipated Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie. The Nexus 5 will not be the star of the Google I/O 2013 event, but we might see a 4G-friendly Nexus 4 being officially announced. Google might also unveil a white Nexus 4 and some updates in terms of internal storage, as the 32 GB model will be introduced.
The price of the Nexus 4 will most likely remain unchanged, as the 16 GB model will replace the 8 GB version and the 32 GB will receive a price tag of $349.
The Nexus 7 might also receive an upgrade, and the rumor mill says that the 7 incher will get a display with a resolution of 1980×1200 pixels and a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset to replace the Tegra 3 SoC of the current generation.
This October, Google will celebrate Android’s 5th birthday and the Mountain View-based company will probably want to keep the Nexus 5 and Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie debut for this occasion.
We are also expecting Google to launch its own gaming service, an unified chat service, called Babel, which will incorporate GTalk, Drive Chat, Gmail chat, and Google Plus Messenger and Hangouts, plus some Google glass demos.
