It was to a disappointment of a lot of people when for perhaps the very first time Google I/O did not bring with it a new Android version or a new Nexus device. There were reports that, Google did plan to announce the next iteration of Android and a Nexus device but apparently pulled them back at the last moment cause they felt, maybe the two were just not ready enough. However, according to the latest reports, we may not have to wait for too long before we see the next Android update which is slated to be Android version 4.3 and named JellyBean and a long awaited white Nexus 4 device.
The folks at Androidandme have reported that they did catch one of the white Nexus 4 device in the wild at the Google I/O and the device which will be running the latest version of Android, 4.3, will be released on June 10th. This is indeed an interesting report given that Apple’s annual Developer’s Conference WWDC gets underway on the same date and we are more or less sure to see the next version of iOS, iOS 7 on the same day. Could it be that for the first time that next Android and iOS versions are launched on the same day? That would definitely make for an interesting story.
It is not really clear though what will be changes in the next Android version but the rumors are for a lighter and smarter with lesser power consumption, Bluetooth Smart and few other minor tweaks. The price point or the release date of the white Nexus 4 is still unknown though most sources believe it would be around the $299 mark like the current Nexus 4.
