Google I/O 2014

Google I/O, June 25–26, 2014, is the year’s biggest nerd party, says The Verge, and lists 11 things to watch out for.

Google’s Nexus line could get at least one more Nexus device, an HTC 8.9-inch tablet powered by a Nvidia Tegra K1 64-bit processor, according to a report by Android Police.

The tablet features a 2048 x 1440 8.9-inch display, 2GB of RAM, and Nvidia’s desktop-class Tegra K1 processor. That processor, which to this point has only been included to the Xiaomi Mi Pad, is 64-bit and can produce some incredible graphics for a mobile device, beating even an I-5 Core with 4400 graphics.

The tablet is rumored to start at $399 for the 16GB version, with 32GB costing $499 and LTE connectivity possibly in the $600+ range.

June 25th’s two-hour keynote may introduce new products such as Android Wear, its new platform for wearable devices with announcements of new smartwatches along with new Android TV devices, home automation and more.

Other Google projects include Project Ara, a modular smartphone, Project Tango, a tablet that can map rooms in 3D, Google Fiber, Google Glass and Project Loon.
