Going to Google I/O 2011

Google I/O Developer Conference

I’m going to be at Google I/O 2011 in San Francisco. I’m exited!

Its the first time I’ll attend a Google event. On previous events Google has given away gadgets that are yet to be released to in the market. So I hope they don’t break tradition this year so I can get my hands on a Nexus S 4G or something cool like that. Also I’ve heard that Jane’s Addiction will be playing there.

About the Nexus S, I’m a bit dissapointed that the normal Nexus S 3G band won’t work with my Mexican carrier Telcel. But I’ve heard rumors that the Nexus S 4G will work for networks similar to AT&T’s since its targeted to a Canadian carrier that uses the 850Mhz band. Hope it does.

I hope to see announcements on Android Honeycomb, hopefully they release the source code anytime soon. I’m also excited about the android talks and what’s planned for the GoogleTV project that hasn’t gotten much attention lately since its launch. Another interesting project I’m looking forward to is the CR48 laptop machines and the Chrome OS.

There’s an android app for the event that you can download here. You can see the schedule, the sessions and also the live streaming if you’re not at the event.

If you’re going to be at the event too please come say hi, and maybe we can gather and go for some beers or something.
