Google unveils the future of mobile computing

Google unveils the future of mobile computing

Google's latest developer conference is, as expected, focused on the next generation of Android phones. Here's what you need to know.

Android 5.0

Android's new operating system (5.0) is codenamed L. It's a complete graphical overhaul for the interface, intended to give the phone "weight."

The operating system mimics real-life design, and offers many new tools for apps developed with L in mind to feature organic interfaces.

These smartphones are going to be worth the wait. Check them out.

L will let users interact with their notifications from the lock screen, a feature also announced for iOS 8.

Android Wear

The next generation of Android tech seems to be focused around integrating wearables. A smart watch will, for example, automatically unlock your phone's screen without requiring a password.

Voice command integration means that you'll be able to tell small watches to set reminders or notifications to your smartphone. The device demoed was the LG G watch which will be available on the play store later today.
