Google I/O 2014: 8 Things To Watch

A revamped Google Glass would make a splash. What other wonders -- or washouts -- might Google unveil at its upcoming developer shindig?

Nexus 8The first two editions of Google's Nexus 7 tablet arrived in July 2012 and July 2013. If Google keeps to its annual summer upgrade cycle, a new tablet should appear soon. If so, Google I/0 would provide an optimal platform to conduct the big reveal. What can we expect? The rumored 'Nexus 8' might have a bigger screen of 8 inches --perhaps to compete with the 7.9-inch Apple iPad Mini -- and a 64-bit Intel 'Moorefield' 2.33-GHz processor, according to AndroidPit. Then again, we might be jumping the gun here. Android Geeks recently reported that the Nexus 8 announcement won't happen until July, or so says an unnamed employee at Google's Dublin office.

New definition of customer
Wouldn't it be great if Google revised their definition of customer to include users of "free" apps or even paid apps, and created a customer service/support department!?

Hard to pick a most interesting part to watch
There are a lot of things on Google's plate lately.  I'm interested to see what the roadmap for Glass is now that they have opened sales up to the public even if it is a limited plan.  I'm also interested to see where Google Docs is headed since they uncoupled it from the Drive application.

Where-able?
I suspect we'll see something to make Android Wear SDK more meaningful, either from Google, Samsung or another Android partner.

Gmail
