Friday Poll: What do you want to see next week at Google I/O?

Google I/O 2011 kicks off next Tuesday and we’re expecting to see some magic.  There are rumors of Google’s new music service finally kicking off, the possibility a new version of Honeycomb (3.1), and maybe even the next big thing, Ice Cream Sandwich.  We’ll be there bringing it all to you live, but is there something in particular that you can’t wait to see or are at least hoping to see?

    A much improved Visual IDE plugin for Eclipse.

    App Inventor 2 – Maybe version 2 will actually be usable for more than just the example apps.The Browser moved to the market so they can improve and upgrade the browser outside of OS upgrade cycle. (They do it with GMail and other apps, why leave the Browser behind?). That being said, would love to see/hear about HTML5 updates, tools, features forthcoming. Phone2Chrome – I like Chrome2Phone, but would find it more beneficial to be able to send a link that doesn’t play well on the smaller form factor be open and ready at my browser when I get to it. Android Home Server – Sort of like a SAN on steroids… but more. A device that allows you to store and stream from your own “private cloud: of content between your phone, Google TV and other devices. Combine it with X10 or some other standard so you could automate your home and control it from your phone or GoogleTV (i,e. Be able to turn up the Air Conditioner while on your way home from work so it is cool when you get there, turn on/off lights from your GoogleTV, set up security or Nanny cams that you can control/view anywhere). OK, so it is just a dream at this point… but I could see it going there… eventually.Annoucement of acquisition of Warner Music and/or EMI. How much of a shock would reverberate throuout the industry if Google acquired a major label and controlled all that content? Don’t think it will happen, but I would love to see it.

  • I will see google music.

  • NexusPlease

    Google should release a ‘Nexus’ device on every carrier if they are gonna keep letting the OEMs use their own skins on top of Android.

      I would like to see though a better nexus on every carrier, the nexus one and two did not sell because they did not have cutting edge specs and were only on one network.

      • Lhooke

        Nexus one’s specs were pretty damn good at the time (not to mention it’s still a very capable phone)… it’s my understanding that the N1 didn’t sell because it wasn’t in stores and was only available on google’s nexus website.

        As for the nexus S, the styling is incredibly boring and dysfunctional IMO and its specs WERE quite outdated when it was released. Not only that, but google is now completely boning NS owners by disabling integral facebook syncing features in 2.3.3.

        I am still hoping for a new nexus from either HTC or LG before I upgrade from the N1. And PLEASE, no more all glossy plastic bodies!!! Give me brushed aluminum, qHD, dual core, hdmi out, a trackpad, qi charging, and at least HSPA+. And stock Ice Cream, of course. Is that so much to ask, Google/HTC/LG?

  • Gigngerbread + Honeycomb + Google TV = Ice Cream Sandwich. {{-_-}}

    I want to see gingerbread on my D1. I mean the Nexus One got gingerbread. The N1 and the D1 both have the same processor why can’t I have some of that gingerbread goodness too????

    • Their processors are completly different bud. N1 = Qualcomm 1GHZ Snapdragon

      D1= 550MHZ TI OMAP 3. If you want gingerbread, go root and get CyanogenMod
