Google I/O 2013 set for May 15-17

Google has just dropped word that the Google I/O 2013 developer conference will be May 15-17 at Moscone West in San Francisco. 

While the location is the same, the May date shifts the conference back to earlier in the year than we saw in 2012, which moved the event to the end of June. (It also puts it the week before the spring CTIA event, which will be in Las Vegas.)

Highlights of the 2012 conference included the unveiling of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, the addition of movies, TV shows and magazines to the Google Play Store, the introduction of the Nexus 7 tablet, the first look at the semi-defunct Nexus Q, and a little skydiving with Google's Project Glass.

The 2012 conference sold out in a mere 28 minutes -- ridiculously fast. Gundotra wrote that registration details for the 2013 conference will be announced in February.

Hit the break for a look back at Google I/O 2012.
