Liveblog: Google I/O Keynote Address

Liveblog: Google I/O Keynote Address
To watch the Google I/O keynote live, head this way!

At last, one of the most anticipated high technology conferences is about to begin. Google I/O is not your run-of-the-mill consumer grade conference or trade-show, this is a gathering of the minds.

Stop right there and get me straight to the liveblog!

Here, developers from all over the world gather to learn and share their ideas within the open environment of the Android mobile operating system, Chrome OS, and a host of other environments that Google has created and dominates.

What can we expect to be unveiled at the conference this year? Frankly, we are not certain. The rumors have been pushing in every direction so much so that at this point, we are certain at least some of the keynote will take us by surprise.

The conference has only one keynote address this year, and it will be kicking off three days of Google I/O. That said, the keynote is scheduled to last about two-and-a-half hours, so we are definitely going to be treated to some great information. Plus, in some of the media prep materials Google is sending out, there will be a device lounge so if there are any new hardware announcements we will be sure to bring them your way.

Once the presentation is over, keep checking in with PhoneArena.com as we will provide up-close photos and hands-on of any new hardware and we will also showcase new features that are coming to Android, Chrome and the Google experience overall.

In the meantime, keep your browser pointed right here as we cover the event live! The Google I/O Keynote event is scheduled to begin at 9:00am PT | 11:00am CT | 12:00 Noon ET | 5:00pm GMT!

You might be right! But Google said that they won't focus on hardware for this I/O, so it's not guaranteed that they will show a new nexus 7, while an updated nexus 4 could be in the works because 8GB is now a joke, so they really need a 32GB with LTE version if they want to sell, and the white nexus 4 that we so could be an indication of an updated model.

"900 million Android devices are activated each day!" I think that is a bit much. With Google saying there are 6,973,738,433 people in the world, that would take a little under 8 days to activate everyone... Think they meant total activations.

649$.. that's a hefty price tag. Im more if a midrange buyer. So just like S4, One & Z i can't afford this even after special care taken by Google.
