With only 1.5 months left until Google IO I’ve curiously been gathering my thoughts and predictions about what Google will announce. But articles on ChromeSpot and GTVsource suggest the writing may already be on the wall: out of 52 listed session titles, 15 contain “Android”, 2 contain “Chrome” and only 1 contains “Google TV”.
Some might find this incredibly surprising, especially considering Chrome OS and Google TV are considered two hot up-and-coming products. While Chrome Browser has enjoyed growth and success, we’re also eagerly anticipating the first publicly available Chrome Netbooks. The CR-48 Chrome Notebook is out there but only as a beta to a select test group. Meanwhile Google TV is in the marketplace and I’ve maintained it will take off once it gets a little Android Market loving.
The sessions are the sessions, there is no denying that, but Google will almost CERTAINLY have a few tricks up their sleeves come May 10th and 11th. We’ve already got word of one of those potential surprises courtesy of GTVsource and – unless we receive the red light – we’ll be sharing it with you tomorrow.
Until then… let’s hear some of your Google IO predictions for Android, Chrome, Chrome OS, Google TV and anything else you have a hunch about such as the long-rumored Google Music service. And fret not GTV and Chrome Fans… great things await you.
