    For some, the Google I/O 2013 Keynote was as remarkable for what was not included as what was included. Many were hoping to catch a glimpse of a new Nexus 7 product, or maybe Android 4.3 which we have been hearing rumors about. Sadly, that didn't happen, (unless you indirectly consider the new SGS4 GE to be a pseudo-Nexus device release). However, there is some new info suggesting we will still see both a Nexus 7 and Android 4.3 before the end of the summer.

    The latest "rumint" indicates a July time-frame for the launch of both of these. Obviously, these launches will be designed to coincide because Android 4.3 will be the OS debuted on the new Nexus 7 model refresh. There is not really much known about Android 4.3 at this time. No real features or functions have been leaked during the time we have caught glimpses of its nomenclature. The only hint we have is the next iteration of Android is likely to include the new Bluetooth 4.0 Smart Ready (also known as Bluetooth Low Energy or BLE). This will be a new Bluetooth standard which uses less power than the current standard, which will be much appreciated in the mobile world.

    This hint of a feature also leads into why the speculation suggests a July time-frame for the release of Android 4.3. Google sent out a press release about the new standard, and supposedly someone at let slip during a Google I/O 2013 developer session that the new BLE will be launched in a couple of months. If you put two and two together, this indirectly confirms a July launch of a feature that will most likely be given in an incremental update like Android 4.3 would be. Of course, it's just speculation at this point, but we will keep you informed if more details emerge.

    Rumors, rumors, rumors, and more rumors....I think we should all take MKBHD's advice from his "X Phone" rant from a few days ago.
