Google I/O 2012 dates announced; who’s going?


It may be a bit early to start talking about this. And with all the Ice Cream Sandwich and Nexus hype, many of you probably don’t want to worry about it yet. Nevertheless, Google has announced the dates for the 2012 Google I/O. The event will be held in San Francisco and is scheduled for April 24-25.

We still cannot predict what will come from next year’s Google I/O, but it is Google’s biggest yearly event covering everything related to the Search Giant. With Android as the strongest smartphone OS in the world, we’ll surely be covering some exciting smartphone news. Google TV will also be featured. Who knows, maybe we’ll hear about the Android version coming after Ice Cream Sandwich?

Those who’d like to attend the event will have to compete against every developer and tech reporter out there. This year tickets were sold out in less than an hour. It can only be expected that the next conference will see much fiercer competition. Prices are still not announced, but we would assume they’ll be quite similar to this year’s. In 2011, registration cost between $450-$550, depending on the date. So be ready to pay at least that much.

Who’s planning to go to Google I/O? You’d better be ready to sign up right when registration opens. What do you guys think we could be seeing in terms of the Android platform?

      It is always fun to go to events. Most times, though, one sees things faster when online. It takes time to cover stuff at events, but if you are online and have many sources, you can see all the cool stuff quickly. Make sure to stay tuned to Android and Me, as well. We will definitely be covering the news! :)

    I think they will have:

    What have happened with Google TV, specially after the Samsung Platform prizes for awesome apps.
    HTML 5 and how will change and kill Flash
    What have happened with the Google Wallet, and what we can do with NFC (i have my Nexus S and still havent used that tech)
    Launch of the next Nexus (to compete with Iphone 5)
    The tablet with Motorola
    and i think they will launch a strong competitor to AppleĀ“s Siri with automatic translation…
    another update to google chrome store!

    Edgar what do you think is the best strategy to buy the tickets, i remember in 2011 there were on January and the VP of development announced and in 30 minutes were off?
