Google I/O 2013 Extended Manila: What to expect?

Since I and my friend received a confirmation from the organizers of Google I/O 2013 Extended Manila last week, I prepare myself to sleep and adjust my sleeping habit since the event will be start at 7:00 PM Wednesday evening and it ends 'til 3:00 AM in the morning. This is due to the time difference we have here in the Philippines and the US...

Google I/O is a 3-day annual developers conference held at San Francisco where Google introduces new products and services to the developers and consumers, attended by different attendees came from different sides of the globe. You must prepare a money that is a half of price of your macbook pro to get there.

Since many of us doesn't have a macbook-like price money, Google extends their hands to the people who want to attend in that event, so Google I/O extended is here.

Google I/O are participated on over 90 countries around the globe via Google I/O Extended events, organized by Google Developers Group worldwide.

So we are pleasured to get involve and invited to that event!

Announcement of refreshed Nexus 7, but how? According to the 9to5google, the big G will release a successor of Nexus 7 in the same price in different specifications at the Google I/O.

The new tablet could ship in June or July, but as expected, here in the Philippines, we didn't know, lets wait..

Updates for Google Nexus 4 phone. A software and hardware updates. In terms of Software, we might expected that these device might have a latest update for Android 4.3, and in a hardware side, we might expecting also to have a support for 4G LTE, also a memory upgrade. Nexus 4 are now available at 8GB and 16GB models, minus the use of Operating System, that is a small amount for a device.
