Photos Reveal Google I/O 2013 Prep

With Nokia’s latest product announcement now behind us, attentions are rapidly turning to this week’s other big circle on the smartphone calendar: Google I/O 2013. The event kicks-off tomorrow, but Google’s already hard at work getting San Francisco’s Moscone Center ready for the the crowds. Some photos of the team’s progress gives us a little preview of what to expect.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like this photoset is going to deliver in quite the same way as some staging photos from a big expo like MWC or an Apple event where a product announcement is due, as we’re not seeing any surreptitious looks at banners or signage announcing the next big thing.

Frankly, expectations have been dialed-down as we got into the home stretch leading up to Google I/O: a new Android version is a big “maybe,” as are rumors of a new Nexus 7. The only thing that really seems to have much certainty to it is this Google Play Games business, and even still we don’t see any sign of it in these setup images.

Check back with us throughout the day for any late-breaking Google I/O rumors, and be sure to come back tomorrow once things finally kick-off for real.
