After the big announcement this morning that all attendees would be getting free phones, we ran to the booth, collected our goodies, then hustled to the press box and promptly took a ton of photos of the unboxing. It was like Christmas. Except better.
We all got a free HTC Magic, newly rebranded as the Google Ion. It came complete in a custom box, has a custom boot screen, and have a Google I/O logo on the back. Also, the thing is tiny. I’m sure that’s been reported over and over, but man this thing feels awesome in my hand.
