It’s right down to business – Google’s officially announced that its I/O 2015 conference will be held between 28 and 29 May this year at San Francisco. And we’re already all excited just thinking about what the company might have in store for us.
Last year, it was all about Google Cardboard, Android L, Android Auto, Android Wear and Android TV, so we’re betting our last dollar that there will be announcements made of that standard (or better) in the coming months.
The Google I/O has always been home to the unveil of the latest Android version, so even though Android 5.0 Lollipop is in its early stages of roll-out, we expect Google’s attention to turn to its successor.
Official details of Android M (maybe it might get named Mocha) are still sketchy, but rumour has it that the next OS version will run not only on mobile devices, but also in future vehicles – without needing to be paired with an Android handset.
Google Glass v2.0
Of course, there’s also the deal with Google Glass. If you haven’t already heard, the original Google Glass got killed off sometime last month and word’s on the street that Google’s got a second version in the works.
It’s apparently redesigning it “from scratch” and we haven’t really seen any spyshots of its refresh, so showing off the purported wearable device then will be a smart move by the company.
We’re also expecting some Nexus smartphones and tablets too, unless it decides to go head to head with other mobile phone makers and show them all off at MWC 2015 in early March. But either way, Google will have some more than average announcements to make on that day. Watch out for it.
