Predictions:
Nexus 5: Nix Those Nexus Thoughts
Motorola Phone: X That Out, Too
Nexus 11: Highly Unlikely
Nexus 7: Refreshed Device Expected
Nexus 4: Update Likely
Android: Great Expectations for a Small Update
Google Hangouts: Chat Everywhere
Game Center: The Biggest Reveal of All?
Samsung Galaxy S4 Google Edition: it's keeping hope alive

The once great hopes for I/O, with a few important exceptions, have mainly disappeared. Whatever revelation occurs, it will probably relate to online gaming (an important future market), as well as unified messaging. Whether Google can actually surprise us, I'm quite skeptical. But I'm hoping for the best.
Are you convinced I'm wrong? Or are you, too, girding yourself for a rather unspectacular developer's conference?:D

Out of keynote conference, these were some of the highlights:
  • Google Play Services and new APIs.
  • Google Play Game Services.
  • Google Play Music All Access
  • Unlocked Galaxy S4 with stock Android
  • Chrome Updates
  • Google+ Updates and new features
  • Google Maps Updates
  • Google Play for Education.
  • Knowledge Graph expands to four new languages.
  • Updates to Google Search.
With Google I/O 2013 over, what was the best announcement? What were you hoping to hear about? >_>
