Google I/O will run from May 15th through May 17th and according to recent details coming from Google, they will be hosting Ingress events on the 14th, 15th and 16th.

Google I/O sessions released – only one keynote this year

Google has just released the schedule full of developer sessions for I/O. Over the past few years, Google's always exciting annual developer conference has featured two morning keynotes where they share all the exciting details. Announcements like Google Now last year, Jelly Bean, Nexus 7, and of course Google Glass. However, this year they will be unifying those keynotes into one main event on day 1, then focusing all their efforts on sessions for developers.

Android 4.3 Jelly Bean is coming soon, not Key Lime Pie

There's been quite a bit of speculation the past 4-6 months over the next major update to the number one mobile OS in the world, what Google will call it, and what features we can expect to see. Talk of Key Lime Pie, Android 5.0, and everything else in between. Lately however, new reports and details have started to surface leading us to believe we won't see Key Lime Pie, and instead Android 4.3 Jelly Bean will be the star of Google I/O next month.

LG Nexus 4 with LTE and Key Lime Pie rumored for Google I/O

We all know the folks from Google have pretty big plans for their upcoming I/O developer event in May, but what exactly will we be seeing is still anyone's guess. We've heard and reported countless rumors but today another has appeared that takes the cake. Apparently Google will be dropping a new LG Nexus 4 (not a 5) with 32GB of storage and full support for 4G LTE. It will run Android Key Lime Pie and be revealed at Google I/O.

Android Key Lime Pie: What we are hoping to see

There is always going to be talk of upcoming releases of Android, and in this case we are taking a look at what we expect to arrive as Android Key Lime Pie. Google has yet to say when they would be making an announcement for Key Lime Pie, however based on previous history, it seems fairly safe to think that talk will happen in May during Google I/O. For those who may not be as familiar with those dates, Google I/O will begin on May 15 and run through May 17.

Google I/O 2013: Now sold out

As we were expecting to happen, Google I/O 2013 has sold out. And done so rather quickly at that. A visit to the 2013 I/O registration page shows that registration is closed and "Google I/O is sold out." Unofficial time reports have I/O as selling out in roughly 45 to 50 minutes, which is a bit slower as compared to last years event.

Google I/O 2013 ticket sales now available

Google has officially opened registration for the 2013 event. The tickets are available at this very moment, however that is likely to change rather quick. The Google I/O events have been selling out quicker and quicker each and every year and with some of the excitement already in place -- we expect this to be a similar situation this year. Those looking to purchase a ticket will need to be quick, and also be willing to part with a fairly decent amount of money.

Google I/O 2013 Registration opens tomorrow at 7AM

The time is quickly approaching where thousands of lucky developers will drop into San Francisco to enjoy one of the best developer events of the year. That being Google I/O of course. As a friendly little PSA we wanted to remind you all that registration for this years show starts tomorrow, promptly at 7AM PDT. You better be quick too!

Google I/O 2013 website is full of Google Easter Eggs

Today the always fun folks from Google just updated the official Google I/O 2013 website. They've published the rest of the details on Google I/O like the dates and times, and stuff we already knew. Then tossed in tons of Google Easter Eggs. The entire site is actually interactive, which I completely missed after heading there when we received our press invite.
