Google I/O is in full swing

Greetings Geeks,

Google I/O has begun and boy is it off to a great start. Me being the complete Google-Whore that I am, I cannot wait to get my hands on some of this stuff. Those lucky #!#%$!@ over at Engadget got to attend I/O and here's what we've learned so far:

Google's new android OS is Jelly Bean. We kind of already guessed as much but now it is 100% confirmed. It's going to start rolling out mid July. It's coming to the Nexus S, Galaxy Nexus and more.

Project Butter is a project by Google that seeks to address the issues of lag that plague so many an Android device. With Project Butter, users can expect 60fps performance at all time. That sounds good to me.

Google is releasing a Tablet called the Nexus 7. 7 inches of Jelly Bean goodness. That's right. Jelly Bean! The tab is going to retail for $199. A direct competitor to the already ridiculously popular Kindle Fire.

Google has also unveiled the Nexus Q. An AppleTV-like set top box which will stream content from the cloud.

More to come as Google I/O continues!
