Google schedules I/O 2015 for late May
Google I/O is a veritable smorgasbord of news for the Android fan. Last year’s conference brought us stuff like the early Android L preview, the launch of Android One, further news of Android Wear, and even the debut of Google Cardboard: not too shabby, all things considered. So of course, we’re eager to learn what’s on the menu this year. We’ve probably got a little while to go before rumors really close-in on what we can expect, but at least we’ve now got a timetable, as Google shares the dates for I/O 2015.
Google I/O will take place this year on May 28 and 29, again at San Francisco’s Moscone Center. Registration is still another month out at this point, opening on March 17. But if you’re intent on going, burn that date into your memory now, as you don’t want to miss your chance to sign up.
It used to be that we’d look forward to a new Nexus 7 at I/O, but between the absence of a new model last year, the lack of further Nexus 7 rumors, and the size of the Nexus 6 encroaching on seven-inch tablet territory already, we’re not particularly anticipating new Nexus hardware. But that doesn’t mean we couldn’t hear more about the next phase of Android One hardware, maybe see some new Android Wear gear, and even learn a little about what (if any) future there is for Google Play edition devices.
Other potential topics include Project Ara, Project Tango, and maybe what’s next for Google Glass. And hell, even if it’s only software and services, we’re still going to be in for a good show.
