Google I/O 2014: 3 Things we cannot Wait to See

Google I/O 2014 Preview

June has already been an exciting month for tech so far with the unveiling of iOS 8 and the launch of Amazon’s first smartphone. And now it’s Google’s turn to make big waves in the tech world with its big Google I/O conference that’s set to start on Wednesday. This year’s I/O promises to be exceptionally busy, as Google’s world-conquering ambitions are going to extend from your smartphone and tablet into your clothes and your home. Below we’ve listed the three things we’re most looking forward to seeing at Google’s huge annual conference this week.

  1. Android 4.5/5.0 Lollipop/Lemonhead. We don’t yet know what the next major release of Android will be called but we do know that Google is going to unveil it at I/O this week. Among other things we can expect to see the next version of Android incorporate support for 64-bit hardware while also showcasing a major design overhaul that will feature flatter icons. Apple really got its mobile developer community fired up with iOS 8 earlier this month and we can’t wait to see what tricks Google has up its sleeves for the newest version of Android.
  2. The first smartwatches based on Android Wear. While the world is still breathlessly waiting for Apple to release its iWatch this fall, Google’s OEM partners are reportedly getting ready to launch three, count ‘em three, different smartwatches that run on Android Wear. Although the early smartwatch releases so far haven’t been smash hits, we’re curious to see how Motorola, LG and Samsung all try to build hardware that will fit around Google’s platform for wearable computers.
  3. What Nest can do now that it’s Google property. With news of Nest’s Developer Program breaking on Tuesday, we feel pretty confident that Google is going to show off its smart thermostats in some way this week. We already know that Nest wants its devices to work seamlessly with your dishwasher, your lighting system and your car and it’ll be great to see what other creative ways for Nest to act as the hub to our connected homes.

And just because there is so much potentially going on at Google I/O this week here are two bonus items:

What are the rest of you looking forward to?

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
