Just a few weeks ago, Apple took over the Moscone Center in San Francisco to host its annual Worldwide Developers Conference. The event, which sold out in under two hours, was geared towards Apple developers and covered several different technologies related to the OS X, iOS and Safari platforms. Apple also kicked off the developer conference by unveiling a new lineup of Mac notebooks and iOS 6 software for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad.
If all of that excitement from Apple wasn’t enough for you, then it’s time to shift gears and focus on Google I/O, which is the search company’s own annual developers conference set to take place this Wednesday to Friday, also at Moscone Center in San Francisco. While Google CEO Larry Page is not expected to speak at the event due to losing his voice, the developer conference still promises to be very exciting with a focus on the future of Android and Chrome.
Google is also expected to announce Google Cloud, a Nexus tablet, an Android home entertainment device, Android 4.1 “Jelly Bean,” an NFC payment system for Google Wallet, Google+ improvements and more. Additionally, there will be more than one hundred developer sessions covering all of Google’s different products and services. iFans will highlight some of the major announcements that take place at Google I/O later this week.
