Internet search engine giant Google has unveiled the date for its next Google I/O developers conference, which traditionally is the launching platform for the next version of Android and Nexus device.

This information has been made public by the Vic Gundotra, the Senior Vice President, Engineering for Google – in a repost from the Google Developers account, to Google +.

It reads: “It might only be December, but Google I/O 2013 is set and is just 162 days away! We’ll be returning to Moscone Center West in San Francisco on May 15-17, 2013, and sharing the experience beyond via Google Developers Live and I/O Extended viewing parties. We’ll announce registration details in February 2013.”

This year’s Google I/O brought in Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, with enhancements to the OS surrounding Google Now, built-in voice control that doesn’t rely on an Internet connection and a completely reworked, faster, code-base.

It also saw the Asus made Nexus 7 tablet launched and the Android run media centre, Nexus Q device – which never saw the light of day.

Omio expects that the 2013 event will herald in Android 5.0, thought to be called Key Lime Pie and a new Nexus device of some description.
