Google I/O Announcements

Rumors were getting pretty ridiculous leading up to this year’s Google I/O conference. Among the products and software that have been rumored to be announced at Google I/O this year are Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie, Google’s new Babble messaging service, the Nexus 7.7 tablet, the Nexus 5 smartphone, the Motorola “X Phone,” an upgraded Nexus 4 in lieu of the Nexus 5 and X Phone, new Google Glass details and more. While some of the aforementioned rumors have since changed, it turns out we really are in store for an action-packed show at this year’s I/O conference. Google on Tuesday evening posted the session schedule for I/O and among the sessions listed is the company’s customary opening keynote — only this year, it’s three hours long. The Google I/O 2013 keynote kicks off at 9:00 a.m. EDT on May 15th, so be ready for tons of announcements to be stuffed into the three hours that follow.
