Google Music All Access has you covered. The service that delivers your own personal cloud of music, up to 20,000 songs, radio stations like Pandora, and access to millions of songs on-demand like Spotify. Announced in May at Google I/O this is a reminder that their introductory price is about to end.
Google I/O is one of those coveted experiences and developer conferences that tons of you want to enjoy. Whether you're a fan or developer of Android, Chrome, YouTube, and more. While sadly not everyone that wants to attend gets to (tickets sell out fast) Google always posts the events online. They were nice enough to live stream the sessions, and now have posted their annual round-up highlight video.
Gmail for Android. What we're seeing could be something new that is coming soon, or instead just a mockup that was used by Google. What you see below is a screenshot from a Google I/O developer session last week, and it's a completely new Gmail with the slide-out navigation bar and all.
Google took the stage at their I/O developer event last week and shocked the crowd and Android world by announcing the Samsung GALAXY S 4 Google Edition running stock Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. Unlocked, developer friendly, and available from the Play Store. Immediately many started wondering if the same was coming from HTC. Would you buy a Google Edition HTC One?
Google I/O from a distance and much of the focus seems to be on the keynote and the freebies that are given to attendees. While it is easy to be a bit jealous of those receiving a free Chromebook Pixel, there are other reasons to be jealous. For one, Google I/O also has these sessions called fireside chats. The nice part about these, the topics are focused and given by those who are regularly working with that particular item, whether it be hardware of software.
Nexus Q media streamer was short-lived, and canceled shortly after being revealed at last years Google I/O event. With no word on a replacement at this years show, we're now seeing its successor hit the FCC. A new Google device branded as H840 DEVICE has cleared the FCC this week (product code H2G2-42, an apparent play on The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy) and it has our interest piqued.
NVIDIA officially announced their new Project SHIELD gaming device would go up for sale in June. We confirmed on Tuesday morning that SHIELD would be available for pre-order starting on May 20th for $349, but today we have even better news. Thanks to a big demand and social buzz, they've moved the date up to today.
Google I/O this year. Many were saying Android 4.3 or 5.0 Key Lime Pie, a new Nexus 7, and even reports of a 4G LTE powered Nexus 4 for all carriers. However, as you all know, this year went very different from years past. Google focused on developers, and didn't drop a new version of Android, or any new hardware. Don't worry though because good things come to those who wait.
