It’s been an action-packed week, for sure. The Moscone Center was home to some pretty cool announcements from Google at their annual developer conference.
Hit the break for a tech and science roundup, including highlights from I/O and the viral Google Glass demo video which sets the bar high for future tech demos- sky high.

It’s that time of year again, when Google drops more Android love on to the masses. Google I/O has started and have we already seen some wonderful new toys. Not just content with officially announcing the next Android OS, 4.1 a.k.a Jelly Bean, the company also spilled the beans on their new hardware. More Nexus goodies are inbound, including the Nexus Q.
The next OS upgrade is built to run faster and smoother with the announced “Project Butter”. PB but no J is a new processing framework that can deliver 60fps of speed with the CPU and GPU working in tandem. With that harmonious union, scrolling and transitions are going to be much faster, fast enough for users to see and feel the difference. Google is tweaking the voice input, supporting offline voice to text as well as 18 new input languages.
The already slick notification center is getting a revamp, granting developers more APIs and even lumping messages from certain apps together. Android users can also have more control with their notifications, like instantly calling back a missed call or emailing contacts. Widgets are smarter now, they slide out-of-the-way to make room for new ones and automatically re-size if they’re too big. The camera app is getting some new tweaks, swipe to view snapped pics, trash the ones you hate and even share your faves.
Hit the break for even more Google goodness…

With all the hoopla at the Ice Cream Sandwich conference, many Android lovers were thinking “What about me?”. The answer my dear friends is You Get Ice Cream Sandwich! You Get Ice Cream Sandwich! You Get Ice Cream Sandwich! Google has confirmed the Nexus S is guaranteed the new Android 4.0 upgrade. Google’s Gabe Cohen even felt the new OS could run on any Android 2.3 device.
Good news indeed for us non-Verizon customers a the flagship Galaxy Nexus with Ice Cream Sandwich is rumored to be exclusive to Big Red. Except me of course, Samsung has yet to update my Captivate to Gingerbread.

And drop mouths now…. Looks as if Samsung is throwing a little teaser at us for the Nexus Prime and Android 4.0. In the video below you dont get a ton of info but you can see that the Nexus Prime is super thin and looks to support multiple docking options due to the small metal dots on the side. Samsung’s Unpacked event in San Diego is schedule for October 11th where we are to find out a little more on Ice Cream Sandwich as well. This new version of Android will be the missing link between phones and tablets by merging Gingerbread and Honeycomb (anyone else getting hungry?) and I for one cannot wait to get my hands on it. Check out the video below and let us know what your thoughts are after the jump and be sure and stay tuned to DHTG for all the info as it happens.
