In fact, people are very keen to hear the announcements that Google might bring out in the Google Annual I/O Conference. The event was started from 27the June and will keep going till 29th June 2012 where Apple will be announcing for its new iOS 6 and Microsoft will unveil its Windows 8 ‘Surface’ tablet as well as a mobile operating system for the Windows Phone 8. However all are speculating about what can be next to be announced by Google and so the rumor has it that there could be five things that Google can announce at the conference. Check them out!
1.Android Jellybean 4.1
It is not a rumor rather it is more official now after Google kept its all new and upcoming project Android Jellybean 4.1 operating system, the successor of Android Ice Cream Sandwich operating system at its lawns. So, Android lovers can expect this new upgrade to be available sometimes soon where users will be able to experience the fastest OS with improved features than the 4.0 ICS from Google Android. Where the previous version ICS was only designed to run on tablets and smartphones, the Jellybean widens its reach and is getting prepared to be functioning on computers and netbooks as well. So, you can think now how this bring the next generation changes and how better this new OS will be supporting the Intel’s x86 porcessor, mouse and physical keypad.
2.Google Nexus Phones
Next surprise could be Google’s Galaxy Nexus that comes packed with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system. This device will get an upgraded version which will be announced at this conference. Google has planned to release this smartphone with Jellybean 4.1 operating system. On the other hand, the good news for people is that there will be five Google Nexus Phones loaded with Jellybean. In fact, big brands such as Motorola and Samsung will also launch their flagship smartphones with this all new and improved operating system. This time the phones will not be sold like the previous model in Google Play only for USA, rather you can expect it to be available in more markets ahead of USA.
3.Google Nexus Tablet
There were lots of assumptions as to whom Google will make its partner for rolling out Nexus tablet. And now the news has it that the first Nexus tablet from Google will be produced by one of the leading brands Asus and as per the records the tablets are set to ship in the market within a month or so. This new tablet will be named as Asus Nexus tablet and will get this new upgrade – Google Android Jellybean 4.1.
We also received more information about this tablet which explains that the device sports 7 inches of display holding NVIDIA Quad-Core processor and 1 GB RAM. This would be a budget oriented device that will come for a price tag of around Rs. 11,000. So, we can at least say that the Nexus tablet is not designed to be giving tough competition to high-end iPad or Windows Surface. Still this device will sport a 5 megapixel camera and also a secondary front facing camera which is useful for video calling. The device could come with 3G connectivity and will also support 4G networks for specific countries with 4G networks.
Now this one has already created a big stir allover when the Apple’s voice assistant ‘Siri’ was launched in the market last year. This forced Google to come up with its own voice support system that it named as ‘Project Majel’. Still there is not much information leaked to public, but we expect that Majel will support multiple languages and accents. In fact, this software will also enable user to control the phone just via voice. This application is expected to run on Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system.
5.Google Project Glass
This is an extraordinary Project Glass from Google that was planned to be unveiled at the conference. The technology that these glasses include is ‘Augmented Reality’ which combines the real world with information that is fetched from computer generated data like graphics, GPS and others. Google has announced that the glasses will sport transparent display and will be worn by users. The glasses will be available along with various functions such as GPS, camera and voice commands. In fact, you can connect this device to your smartphone and can make calls, send messages, take pictures, and do plenty of other stuff.
There are possibilities that Google will expand its reach further and come with more changes. It could announce a new cloud which is based on storage application. So, for now stay connected to us and leave us your comment There could be more than these 5 things that Google could announce at this annual conference.
