Google I/O Event to Unveil New Goodies

KIMIHIRO HOSHINO/AFP/Getty Images(SAN FRANCISCO) -- Google is gearing up for its annual Google I/O developers conference on Wednesday, and like in years past, it is set to announce a series of new software and hardware products.

During the three-hour long keynote, which is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. PT, the company is expected to talk about everything from its Android operating system to Google Maps to its Google Plus social network.

While Google has said that at this year’s conference it would focus more on the application developers and not the products, it appears the company still does have a set of new products up its sleeve.  

Reports indicate that Google will discuss a new gaming service called Google Play Games, which will allow users to play each other over the Internet.

At last year’s conference, Google released the Nexus 7 tablet.  According to 9to5Google, the company will update the $199 Android tablet on Wednesday with a higher-resolution screen. 

It is also rumored to be ready to talk about the newest update to Android.  While Google is working on the next major version of its mobile operating system, called Key Lime Pie, it is only expected to discuss smaller Android updates on Wednesday.

The company is also said to be planning to detail revisions to its Google Maps and Plus products.
