GOOGLE i / O PREVIEW 2013





GOOGLE i / O PREVIEW 2013

Good afternoon, Synapse Circuit Readers! Oooh, less than 3 hours to go before Google starts its annual developer conference! Hmmmm... This time around the conference appears to be aimed squarely at developers and there will be little by the way of new products for consumers to drool over...

...EXPECTATIONS
I think us consumers can expect the next generation Nexus 7 tablet, more news on Google Glass – release date schedule, the next Nexus phone, the mysterious Google Motorola X phone or XFON and I think there’ll be new of a Google version of the Samsung Galaxy S4 that runs stock Android...

Speaking of Android... It is said that Android 5, Key Lime Pie is not on the cards for this conference. I think we’ll be getting news of version 4.3 instead...

...DISAPPOINTMENT?
Hmmmm, as a technology lover I can’t say that this conference will come as a bit of a disappointment because if Google are concentrating on development it will benefit us Android fans in the not too long run! We need better apps to match that of Apple App Store. So, rejoice at the wonderful things to come!   

...SURPRISES?
There could be some surprises by the way of the much talked about and rumoured Google Watch and some Chromebook devices. The Nexus Q? I would love for the Nexus Q, the game / media console, to make a comeback but it is doubtful... Yet, at the same time I believe that a special game hub on Google Play will be announced... Just maybe the Nexus Q could play a part in that... There are those that say that the Nexus Q failed spectacularly however my opinion is that it just wasn’t ready – it was released too early! That’s Google for you! They had a go at trying to bring something new to the market without too much of a development process. It’s not a bad thing, but to call it an out and out failure is unappreciative.

I don’t think there’ll be much by the way of surprises this year...

...STRATEGICALLY
I think that the strategy is to wait until later in the year to see what Apple comes up with regarding iOS 7 and the iPhone 5S or 6.I get the feeling that Google are getting ready to drop some bombs to head off Apple’s next offensive!

...LESS THAN...
2 hours to go...   

I’ll be sure to let you know the good news from this year’s Google i / O conference.
