Rumor mills continue to run regarding Google I/O this year to be held in June. If the rumors are anywhere near the actual truth, you should expect some really exciting stuff. There have been reports around the web suggesting that Google will not announce a Nexus 7 tablet next year. Allegedly, Google has no plans of announcing a major update to Android at the conference as well. Instead, according to reports, Google may announce Nexus 8 and Android 4.5 in July this year. The Google I/O event will instead be used to announce several new Google services to be launched this year and anything Android 4.5 and Nexus 8 will be left for July. More on that after the jump.
Earlier in this week, Google confirmed the dates for the Google I/O event. The conference will be held towards the end of June which is the same month that Apple holds the WWDC developer event in San Fran. While Apple may announce a new iOS and an all new iPhone, Google will keep its major updates under wraps until July. When in July is not for certain as of now. The tips comes from Google’s offices in Dublin which also suggest that Google may be increase an inch of screen size with the release of Nexus 8. We might get to see an 8 inch tablet from Google this year because apparently, the competition in the 7-inch category has already gone haywire.
