Printing-ink veterans don't take cyberspace journalists too seriously - Roy Greenslade, Guardian Online
INTERNET GIANT Google has announced the date for next year's Google I/O developers conference, where the firm is likely to unveil Android 5.0.
Google tweeted to save the date for next year's conference on Tuesday. It reads, "Save the date! Google I/O '13 will be 5/15-17. Reg info coming in early '13. Meanwhile, revisit the magic: http://google.com/io #io13."
Of course, the firm has so far kept quiet about what we can expect from next year's conference, but we've already started speculating.
It's likely that Google will unveil the next version of its Android operating system, which is probably to be branded Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie. We have no idea what to expect from the next generation mobile operating system, but speculation suggests that it will feature improved support for multiple accounts and a tweaked user interface.
We're also predicting that Google will unveil a new Nexus device at the San Francisco conference, as it announced its debut tablet, the Google Nexus 7, at this year's keynote.
Our final guess is that we'll finally see a commericial release for Project Glass, Google's augmented reality eyewear concept, and the release of its Nexus Q media streamer device.
All will be revealed in six months. µ
