Google IO Invite

Google I/O invite hints at gaming service launch, or may be at unified communication platform

Google IO InviteAn alleged Google I/O invite has appeared online. Sent to folks at Ausdroid by an anonymous tipster, this invite indicates that Google might be planning to launch the rumoured gaming service at I/O keynote on May 15.
