Google have been busy lately, but we're all still waiting to see what exactly they've been working on. With the new second-gen Nexus 7 not arriving at Google I/O as expected, we've now been seeing multiple reports on the slate, but still no sighting.

Google I/O this year didn't have any crazy new hardware announcements or a change in the Android OS version.

The Google I/O schedule was released earlier in the month and it shows just one keynote. The keynote will run for a few hours on the morning of May 15th and this will be where our immediate attention is focused. The Android Community team will be on-site to bring you the latest, however as we recently saw with the release of the Google I/O 2013 app, these events will also be streamed for those not able to attend.
