Google I/O 2013 to Take Place May 15-17, Registration to Open Early 2013

Today, Google has announced the dates for 2013’s Google I/O. Usually taking place at San Francisco’s Moscone Center, the event is scheduled for May 15-17 with early registration beginning sometime early 2013. Last year, we were introduced to the Nexus 7, Nexus Q, and Jelly Bean. This year, can we expect some Key Lime Pie?

Any thoughts on what we’ll see in May?

    I’d like to see At Home implemented, but Google Wireless would set the world on fire

  • Bionic

    The Motorola Nexus 5. It’s gonna happen.

  • inb4 server crash

  • Warwick

    Moto Nexus PLEASE

  • Andrew

    google wireless please!

  • Kevin Mills

    The 15th is my birthday! Oh man, that would be the greatest present of all. To go that is.

  • NyReynolds

    Can anyone attend as long as u you can get a ticket?

    • JoshGroff


  • Nexus 7 with LTE with an upgraded Tegra 3 and 2GB DDR3 RAM. A man can dream

    • So Nexus 7 v2? lol

      • Exactly lol

      • Justin W

        Honestly, it’s perfect timing. Almost a year after it was unveiled, it’s only a month earlier than last year. It’s likely, but I don’t know about those specs. With what they accomplished with the N4, I wouldn’t be surprised to see another S4 Pro or maybe an A15 Exynos Quad in it. I think I’d rather have the Exynos Quad over the S4 Pro, but we’ll see in 6 months 🙂

    Can’t wait to see what they unveil this year

  • either way i’m sure it will be good as this year. Better than Apple’s crappy events combine.

  • imneveral0ne

    32gb nexus 4…

    • chris125

      On Verizon lol

    • SeanBello

      I still wouldn’t get it that late. It’s already not supported by AOSP, let alone if Verizon got their hands on it. It’d never receive an OTA

  • Chris

    Nexus Q. What’s that? 😛

  • a.youth.in.Asia

    Kumquat is going to be AMAZING!

  • maratu

    I’m thinking of doing it out of the sheer possibility of obtaining free super-swag.

    • JoshGroff

      Free pre-launch super swag. 😉

      • Hunter

        Not all of it is pre-launch. They gave away Galaxy Nexus devices last year after they had already been out for a few months.

        • JoshGroff

          True, but they are most likely unveiling a new nexus phone. *hopefully*

  • ddevito

    I’m going – gonna get me an Android/Chrome OS touchscreen hybrid laptop

    aaawww yeah

  • ChristianJohnson

    KLP along with a refreshed Nexus 7? Maybe even an revamped Nexus Q.

  • All I can expect is the inability to purchase a ticket.

  • Greg Morgan

    I would love to attend one of these some time. But I’m poor so that won’t happen. Lol

  • Main question is, what devices can we expect them to give away to the people who are lucky enough to grab a ticket?

    • I got my money on a limited edition white Nexus Q. Then again, I guess all Q’s are limited edition :-/

    • Greg

      Motorola Droid Nexus – S5 quad core 2.0GHz snapdragon, 4GB Ram, 128GB storage, NFC, Bluetooth 5.0, VoLTE only, another POS 8MP camera, and a 4.5″ 720p display with edge to edge to give it a small form factor.

      • JoshGroff

        Yes, because we have enough LTE coverage to exclusively use VoLTE…

        • Kevin Mills

          That’s the part of his comment that you thought was far fetched?

          • JoshGroff

            No, that was just the one that is completely impossible, the rest could happen but are just unlikely, minus the screen, NFC, and camera.

          • Hunter

            Why is it completely impossible? Would it be a bad idea?… yep. Could they still do it?…. sure.

          • JoshGroff

            Ok, it would be a bad idea to do it since it would be useless in quite a few places. Granted not impossible.

          • Justin W

            … I have LTE coverage all over my town, I could utilize VoLTE without any issues (if they enable it). The most unrealistic part of that is the S5, in my opinion. The 4GB Ram is easily attainable, the 128GB storage is easy as well (makes me wonder why they don’t utilize more), the POS camrea is already in use and the display is extremely similar to the RAZR M’s (with 720p instead of qHD).

          • JoshGroff

            Allow me to point out the phrase “VoLTE only”, meaning exclusive. Then allow me to remind you there’s still quite a few places that don’t have LTE. There won’t be a VoLTE exclusive device released until after carriers have A widespread LTE coverage, and B have released phones that have VoLTE in general.

          • Justin W

            Allow me to point out that I didn’t say LTE would be widespread, I just said if they enable LTE only and VoLTE, I would be able to utilize it with a VoLTE only phone without issues since I have excellent coverage in my town. I know they won’t enable it until their coverage matches their 3G footprint though, so they’ve got about a year to go.

            I didn’t expect so many responses, obviously S5 wont happen. but the S4 Prime quad core Krait will be available then and can be clock up 2.5 GHz. 4 GB of ram sounds dumb to me now that i read it again and samsung just started making the 2 GB chip phones are using now. 128 GB of storage OS possible but would be expensive and given Google love for the cloud 16 GB is much more likely. Bluetooth 5.0 standard doesn’t exist yet and would take awhile to show up in products after its Specification is adopted. I like of idea of a smaller HD phone like the Razr M with a 720p Super LCD 3.

            VoLTE is only a reality for Verizon. Their LTE Network roll out will be finished shortly after IO. with VoLTE service coming later that year. VoLTE has been in works and testing ever since Verizon got LTE. It is coming soon.

            I can dream VZW will get a Moto Nexus someday right, or maybe Google is saving that as an exclusive for their own wireless network….

      • You’re dreaming real big and unrealistic here.

      • Sirx

        As long as the camera is a POS, that’s all that matters to me! I like all the pictures that I upload to come with that little tag “Sent from my POS phone camera”
