Countdown to Google I/O: Submit your questions for Android handset makers

Google’s largest developer event of the year is right around the corner and we will be there to bring you all the latest news. This year’s Google I/O is looking like an Android party after Google shipped all paid attendees a free Droid or Nexus One. The event sold out early, but our goal is to bring you as many videos as possible so it feels like you are there with us.

One of our favorite sessions from last year was the Fireside Chat with the Android team members. Google allowed anyone to submit any question and then members of the audience voted up their favorites. It was a great opportunity to listen as the Google engineers took on all questions and candidly spoke about the topics that mattered.

This year Google is hosting two fireside chats – one with the Android engineers and another with the handset makers. If you ever wanted to get those tough Android questions answered, this is likely your best shot all year.

How to play

Leave a comment to submit your question for the Fireside chat with Android handset manufacturers. The exact list of companies joining the panel is still to be determined, but I would expect to see at least HTC and Motorola participate.

The topic is pretty open as long as it is Android related and geared towards handsets. Feel free to ask about anything you think the handset manufacturers should address. If you have general questions about the Android OS, please save those for a future countdown post.

As the questions start to come in, use our comment rating system to vote up the questions you think we should ask and bury the stupid ones. There is no guarantee your question will be answered, but I’ll do my best to ask the questions that get the most votes.

Update: Submit as many questions as you like, but split them into different comments so users can vote them up or down.
