Google has an event called I/O each year since 2008 for Google to share with developer communities what it’s plans and strategies are for Google’s products over the next year. In 2009, the I/O event sold out in 90 days, in 2010 it sold out in 10 days. This years’ event sold out in 59 minutes at $450 a seat! While it’s great to be there, the event will also be streamed live on Google’s youtube page for all who couldn’t attend as well.
We expect to hear about Android, and how Google plans to blend Android Gingerbread into Honeycomb for smartphones. We’ll hear more about Chrome OS for netbooks as it’s supposed to launch this summer, and no doubt we’ll hear about Google TV, and how they plan to get rid…*cough* keep it alive after what many call a “failed” launch.
The event takes place May 10-11 2011 in San Francisco. Stay tuned!
