Earlier this year during February, Google filed an FCC application for a mysterious device. Based on what was known at that time and the description given in the filing, many suspected that it might have something to do with the Android@Home project that Google debuted at last year’s Google I/O. Now thanks to an even more FCC filing, it seems that Google has requested to extend its testing period of the device into August. While Google has yet to take the wraps off the device, some are speculating that thanks to its more recent FCC filing, it could be announced at Google I/O which will be taking place at the end of this month.
So far based on the details that have emerged, the device has been labelled as a “Personal Communication Device” with GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth connectivity and an AC adapter. It is also portable and will be able to stream content/data and can be disabled remotely. Granted these are rather vague terms and can be used to describe a number of gadgets these days, but Android@Home does seem to be a fan favorite for now. Either way we expect more details and a possible unveiling of Google’s Nexus tablet to be taking place at Google I/O, so check back with us then for the details and to see if the rumors pan out.
