Come party with Android and Me at gdgt Live during SXSW


With SXSW fast approaching, we know that your schedules are surely starting to fill up. Well, if you haven’t made plans to attend gdgt Live on March 12 at the Austin City Music Hall, your plans aren’t quite complete just yet.

gdgt Live is free, open to the public, and filled with awesome. We’ve attended as fans in years past, but this year Android and Me will be joining the fray as an official media partner, bringing you a closer look at all the latest tech (as well as some shenanigans).

If you’ve never attended a gdgt Live event, you can check out the Flickr sets or YouTube channel to get an idea what you’re in for. Basically it’s dozens of tech companies presenting their latest and greatest mixed with a healthy dose of free drinks and swag. Sound good? Grab a ticket below:

When I said ‘dozens’ of companies, I really meant it. Check out the full list of sponsors:

Platinum: BlackBerry, Dish Network, Nokia, Speck, Twonky
Gold: Logitech, Peel TV, SanDisk, Samsung, Slingbox, SugarSync, TiVo
Silver: Application Developers Alliance, Belkin, Boxee, Cobra Electronics, G-Technology, Gogo Air, Kingston, Locotext, Marvell, NETGEAR, netTALK, Olympus, Phiaton, Roku, Seagate, Simple.TV, Sonos, Sphero, SRS Labs, Rackspace, T-Mobile, Texas Instruments DLP, Western Digital

The event starts at 7PM but the first few hundred to arrive are said to be in store for some special freebies, so make sure to be on time. While you’re there, don’t forget to use the official hashtag of the event, #gdgtAustin.

See you guys there!
