The announcement section is over, and all that's left of the Google I/O 2013 keynote is a question and answer section with Google CEO Larry Page. There have been a ton of announcements across all of Google's products from Android to the web to iOS and more. So, the real question is: What was your favorite Google I/O keynote announcement?...

They did state that it was going to be developer focused. From a developers persepctive all the things that have been announced today are actually extremely exciting. And a lot of the features are technically an upgrade of Android, they just didn't really slap a 4.3 number onto it. They technically could of announced all this and called it Android 4.3

No GTR722 the world does not revolve around you. Good tools for developers make developers happy. Which may translate to better apps/services, which makes customers happy. Which may translate to money-throwing customers, which then may make Google and developers happy.

Besides, did you not see Keynote Day -1-? DAY ONE. The only fail is you.

Not very, no.

I'd say your post was full of mad at Google.

If I am mad, it'd be at a self-entitled fail like you.

And about the 'no new phone' they've historically unveiled the new nexus phone at the year's end every time. What made you think it'd be different now? What, rumors? Then you really are a fail.

Wow.....I guess everything else that they announced was garbage? Hey.....this at least gives manufactures a chance to catch up with Nexus phones running the latest version of Android.

I think that was to let OEM's catch up. Let Jellybean 4.2.2 get on more phones and tablets, having it eat in to Gingerbread's marketshare before releasing the next version.

98% software and internet based.
Sadly, the 2% of hardware announcement wasn't entirely hardware based at all.
O, well...these are still improvements in the Google-Android eco-systems so it's not that bad. And the news of the new Nexus 5 is still ticking so...
Somehow, i think in Q3 and Q4, smartphones of all varieties are going to rain heavily for us all.

The Galaxy S4 pure android can be seen as somewhat of a nexus. But I doubt it will come with the pricetag of a nexus.

Ditto, felt severely underwhelmed thanks to this massive fail of a bore. The Nokia 925, although a modest update I found more entertaining than this.

the same here. the 925 event (which many people though it was underwhelming) is more exciting than this :/ !

Wow! An other dissapointment! Yesterday Nokia dissapoinred me with it's event (I like the Lumia 925, but the event was a dissapointment) and today Google dissapointed me... I was excpecting so much new things from these to events... Hope they will satisfy us later this year!

Maybe tomorrow they will announce 4.3? I mean there is no way to have a Google I/O w/o having a software update...

Exactly. I think some people are too quick to throw in the towel... There's still a second-day keynote. They might announce the features then, you know...
