Google I/O 2012: What to expect
| by Naina Khedekar
After Apple and Microsoft, Google is now geared up to put its best foot forward at the Google I/O event that begins on June 27 and will run up to June 29. Apple flaunted the new iOS 6, Microsoft finally pulled the wraps off the new Windows 8 for tablets and Windows Phone 8, and now Google is all set bring to the table its new advancements to the Android OS along with a few other announcements. There is a lot of buzz about the newest iteration of the Android and also the new Nexus tablet, so going by the latest buzz on the Internet, we decided to put what all we could possibly expect at the Google I/O event under one roof.
Taste of the Jelly Bean
If reports are to be believed then the Google Nexus isn’t a competitor of the iPad, infact it is expected to be a low to mid range tablet affordable for most segments of the tech society. So, it's neither competition to the Surface. Nvidia recently talked about how “Project Kai” will change the way we think about cheap Android tablets and how Kai is a platform, more than a piece of hardware and along with Tegra 3 and a mix of low-cost components; it’s very much possible to deliver a sub-$200 tablet, without having to compromise on performance. And what better way to launch this than with Google’s Nexus tablet.

Competitor to Siri?
Besides, we also hope Google shows off the new new Google Glass, in case you remember the Google Glass Project. Though Sergey Brin had maintained that the Glasses are likely to be be launched next year, we wouldn't be surprised if it grabs a certain amount of the limelight at the Google I/O event. Moreover, Google is also said to be broadcasting the event through YouTube, so even if you can’t make it to San Francisco, we are sure you won’t miss any part of the event.
