Countdown to Google I/O: Submit your questions for the Android team

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 questions 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 the Android team. For questions related to hardware, see our Questions for Android handset makers post.

It looks like most of the questions related to Android 2.2 and Flash 10.1 will be revealed on the second day of Google I/O, but feel free to ask about whatever you like. We will be scanning this post before the Fireside chat and use it to pick out the top unanswered questions.

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 individually vote them up or down.
