Google I/O with just one keynote this year, don't hold your breath for Google X or this year's Nexus phone
As if to confirm there might not be any earth-shattering announcements and hardware presentations at its I/O conference in two weeks, Google issued the schedule for the event, and it features just a single keynote.

Granted, it will be three hours long, but Google is no stranger to waxing poetic about some obscure backend solution they've been struggling with for a while and finally resolved.

Previously we had the Google I/O conference keynote spanning two days, and covering Android and Chrome in separate innuendos. This year, when the event starts May 15, it will be just the three-hour keynote from 9-12 PT, followed by six hours worth of sessions and Developers Sandbox, with more of those on the next day, and that's that. All in all, we aren't holding our breath for the Google X or this year's Nexus phone being announced in two weeks, the way things are shaping up.

That's Bad they just Couldn't help their own Moto which is Suffering from loss. Hope they make the X phone by the year end with the best possible Specs.

I would hope for the new generation of Nexus tablets at least. Asus Nexus 7^2, Motorola Nexus 8 or 9, and Samsung Nexus 10^2.

The nexus 4 only came out in November and did not get properly stocked until February. Why do you think they will release a new nexus phone not even 6 months after release. The trends show that they release October November time. You can expect a new nexus 7 refresh and maybe nexus 10!

One keynote might mean that their two software systems might turn into one.

Seems all the major tech/mobile events have been less than extraordinaire this year. With my disappointment with CES and MWC this year, I was really expecting a lot from Google I/O. I still believe Google has some surprises in store for us...just wait and see!
