Engadget has gone downhill as of late....The new Android boss said "That's not to say there won't be any new Google-branded hardware on show, but Pichai reiterated that "any hardware projects we do will be to push the ecosystem forward" a "continuation of what we have tried to do with Nexus and Chromebooks."

The Verge has a bit more detail. Tbh I think it would be really surprising if a new Nexus 7 and a minor Nexus 4 refresh didn't show up at this year's I/O.

We'll I've scraped together enough for a Nexus 7 ( by a miracle ) and I'm hoping for an updated one to be outed at the upcoming conference .

I hope it stays at the 159 price if a new one is announced

Google I/O was started in 2008. The "I" and "O" stand for input/output, and "Innovation in the Open". The format of the event is similar to that of the Google Developer Day.

well, with BBM coming to Android and iOS, Babel/Babble/Hangouts looks like it might have more competition.....

Save a bit more and get an iPad mini. Much better value and a vastly larger tablet app library, among many other advantages.

It's not just a bit more is it.

Nexus 7 16GB - 169
iPad Mini 16GB - 269

It is in fact 59% more expensive.

Also there are many things a Nexus 7 can do that an iPad can't.

- Multi-user accounts.
- Emulators for games consoles and support for PS3/360 controller
- Ability to install apps from anywhere

To name just a few.... Anyway I don't wanna continue yet another tiresome iOS vs Android debate especially in a thread about the Google I/O.

I might give the updated nexus 7 another go if it were to get a 1080p display and better colour saturation than the previous version.

Ohh....but if you get a Nexus 7, you're just settling because you "can't afford" an iPad.....riiiight?

Not really just small bits and pieces like enhancements to Google Maps, Google + and so forth. Nothing groundbreaking IMO.

Ah from what I've just read today is only the first day although I'm not sure how long it goes on for. Prehaps the better stuff will come later on.

I actually thought there would be a mention of Android 4.3.
