Welcome to day 2 of Google I/O. Day 1 was pretty busy, but who knows - maybe today is going to be even more exciting. Google TV updates? Chrome? We'll see in just a few minutes. Join us in the live blog below:
Here we are, in the front row of the first keynote at what is probably the most exciting conference of the year - Google I/O. This time around we're using a slightly different, and I think much better solution compared to CoverItLive - ScribbleLive. ScribbleLive lets us do all the things CiL didn't - most importantly, we can finally start to actually enjoy managing the reporting side of the live blog as opposed to fighting it.
We've talked a lot about Google I/O this year. A lot. Some things, like the Nexus 7, are pretty much a sure thing at this point.
Finally, an end to all rumors about the Galaxy S III and its variants. Or is it? We'll find out at Samsung's launch event, which we're covering live on location in London. My hat's off to Samsung for creating more buzz about this phone than any other company making Android devices has ever made about any Android phone or tablet, all without actually revealing it .
The action starts May 3rd at 11AM PDT, 2PM EDT, 7PM BST (London time) - the live coverage form on this page will automatically update when the wheels are in motion.
In the meantime, sign up for a reminder below - we'll see you back here soon (Note: May 3rd, not 2nd - I'm just giving you a sufficient heads-up).
- Official unveiling of Samsung's new Media Hub service and
- Showing off the latest Android-powered device.
Android Police gratefully accepted the invitation and picked me to cover it, so expect a post-game report to float on the site sometime after the event concludes.
While we do not yet know for certain what this new "Android-powered device" will be, the invitation does include the "Galaxy S" brand logo. Speculation is abound that the device being announced will be the hotly anticipated Galaxy Tab, the 7" Android-powered tablet device.
