[RUMOR] I/O Attendees to receive a tablet, Nexus S?

Twitter is abuzz with speculation regarding exactly which device(s) will be given to the lucky Google I/O attendees. One twitterer claims to have it on good authority from a Googler that our beloved Google will be giving away not one, but two devices to those at the Moscone Center.

One of the devices will be a tablet, though no specifics on which tablet was announced. If I were a betting man, I’d put money on the newly released ASUS EeePad Transformer, though Motorola’s Xoom tablet is also a strong possibility.

The other device will be a Nexus S phone, though no word on whether this will be the T-Mobile-friendly Nexus S or the newly-released Nexus S 4G on the Sprint network.

Now, we must stress that this is strictly a rumor, and we won’t know for sure what will be given away until tomorrow. That being said, we love speculation, so what do you think Google will be giving away after tomorrow morning’s keynote?

    I would be ecstatic to receive an ASUS Transformer, but it’s the G-Slate.

    Usually the announce the freebies during keynote and hand them out afterwards at the gear pickup stations.

    What about a Nexus Tablet? :)

    They’ll also be announcing two versions of Android, one of which will never be released for your phone; the other will be some time in Q3 2012, once your network has filled it with all sorts of shit (Q4 for Orange UK customers).

    Why would they give away a tablet that retailets can’t keep in stock when there is one collecting dust on retailers shelves? My moneys on the verizon xoom with a month of service like the evos last year.

    I would laugh if Google got angry because someone spilled the beans about free devices and took all the free stuff back to the warehouse and gave everyone a punch in the face.

    Last year everyone got Htc/Sprints Evo 4g and that was grand the granddaddy of 4g. This year Sprints Nexus S4g would be great why not it is afterall a google device and it’s on the best carrier period.
