Operator: Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome Senior Vice President, Vic Gundotra.

Vic Gundotra – Senior Vice President, Google

Well, good morning and hello. And on behalf of Google, let me extend our warmest welcome to the 6,000 of you here in attendance as well as the over 40,000 who have joined us in 440 viewing parties across 90 countries worldwide. And to the over one million who are watching live on YouTube right now, welcome to the 6th Annual Google I/O.

Our platform and services teams have worked incredibly hard to get to this point. And I hope you’re going to be delighted by some of the surprises we have in store for you this morning. But as that opening video showed, it’s really not about us. It’s about you, developers, who are building the most amazing and magical experiences that make those platforms and services come alive.

So when we say thank you, we really sincerely mean it. Your support, your enthusiasm, your building of apps for our platform and services has been deeply appreciated. And we hope that the things that you’ll see at this conference will continue to inspire you and that we at Google will continue to earn your trust.

So with that, let’s get this keynote started.

Please join me in welcoming my friend Sundar Pichai.

Thank you, Vic. It’s incredibly exciting to be here. Welcome to Google I/O. I think we are in the middle of one of the most pivotal moments in personal computing. We are going through one of the most innovative phases in personal computing. Most of you in this audience have lived through the PC revolution. An incredibly important revolution in our lifetime.

It started around 1980. But if you take a look back, for over 25 years most people in the world used one operating system, which was Windows. And in terms of hardware form factors, it evolved from desktops to laptops over a long period of time. But fast forward to about seven years ago. With the advent of smartphone, there has been an explosion of devices, phones and tablets and increasingly newer types of devices. People are adopting these devices at an amazing pace because it has a profound impact on their day to day lives.
