Google brings new designs and a splash of color to its Android developer portal ahead of I/O conference
Following the back-to-back mayhem of Apple’s and Microsoft’s big announcements this month, which have brought some interesting surprises, we look forward to see what Google will share on its I/O conference on June 27 – 29. Aside from the hardware giveaways, some of the things on our wish list include the official unveiling of Android 4.1 Jellybean and that super affordable Nexus tablet. While Google is still keeping mum on the two subjects, it’s probably because the company has been busy redesigning its developer website.
The newly designed Android developer portal is certainly much easier on the eyes now. Not only is there a new splash of color, the portal has also be been graced with the presence of Roboto, the font that was especially designed for the Holo theme of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and most likely its future iterations.
With Microsoft flexing its hardware muscles to push its phones and tablets, as well as lingering threats from other platforms, revamping the main hub of Android developers by making it more functional and polishing its looks certainly won’t hurt Google’s attempt to make Android an even bigger player in the mobile OS industry.
How do you like the new design of Google’s Android develop portal? Any particular thing you’d like to see being revealed on Google’s I/O conference next week?
