[Updated: Sold Out] Google I/O Public Registration Now Open

The tickets for Google's upcoming developer conference called I/O are now for sale to the public. They will go fast, so you may want to grab that credit card and start mashing away at the keyboard pronto. Public registration comes after a week of early registration, which was capped at 1500 tickets and ran out very fast. A total of about 5,500 tickets are said to be available, all expected to melt away very fast.

Google Opens Up Early I/O Registration

Google Opens Up Early I/O Registration

Google I/O, a conference dedicated entirely to Google technologies and hosted in San Francisco's Moscone Center, is fast approaching, and Google today opened up early registration to key developer partners and 2010 I/O attendees. Early reg, available to the first 1500 people who complete it, costs $450 ($100 more than last year). Don't worry though - when it goes public next week, the price is going to stay the same until April 17th, at which point it will go up another $100 to $550 (thanks for the correction, Philip!).

Amazon Kindle App For Android Demoed, Integrated Store Rumors Debunked [Post Google I/O Coverage]

A few weeks ago we reported that the official Amazon Kindle app would be coming to Android, most likely this summer, with direct access to all your Kindle books and buying books from within the app using a special Android optimized store with wireless auto-delivery, which would set the app apart from its equivalents on some other devices.

App Demo At Google I/O

At Google I/O, I got to demo the app that Amazon was showing off, and managed to snap a few photos describing pretty much all of its functionality.

Get Ready For An Even More Social Android - Facebook SDK Has Gone Live

Get Ready For An Even More Social Android - Facebook SDK Has Gone Live

Facebook, which demoed a new Android SDK at Google I/O last week, has put up the library online for all developers to see and use [github link].

Created by Steven Soneff, an engineering intern, the library enables support for

  • Strong authentication using OAuth 2.0
  • Making requests to the new Graph API
  • Publishing stories back to Facebook via Feed forms

This means that any Android developer will now be able to easily incorporate Facebook interaction into their own application, so get ready for a boom of Facebook connected apps.

Tweetdeck For Android, Privately Demoed At Google I/O, Is Coming "In The Next Few Weeks" - Will It Be The Best Twitter/Social App For Android? [Post Google I/O Coverage]

Across from the Plaxo booth at Google I/O, where I was spending most of my time demoing our Gmail<->Plaxo contact sync, stood the Tweetdeck booth.

I absolutely love, love, love Tweetdeck, especially after the 0.34 update (which was announced during the I/O), so I took advantage of the opportunity to chat with the CEO and one of the engineers about Tweetdeck, some bugs I've run into, and future plans.

It turned out that the next project in the pipeline, kept under wraps for now, was Tweetdeck for Android.

HTC EVO 4G First Impressions And A Mini Hands-On Review. Post Your Questions You Want Answered [Post Google I/O Coverage]

After I've finished unboxing the HTC EVO 4G that Google gave out at the Google I/O conference, I started playing with the phone and noting down things that are different from other phones, things that are interesting, and things that bug me.

Note that this is not meant to be a full review - the bullet points are just my first impressions after 2 hours of use. Think of this post as a mini hands-on review:

HTC EVO 4G Unboxing [Post Google I/O Coverage]

Wow, Google, I still can't believe after giving out a Droid, you surprised us, Google I/O attendees, with an EVO 4G as well, 2 weeks before it is released to the public.

I unboxed mine this morning and started playing with it right away. Enjoy these unboxing photos (as much as you can enjoy someone else uboxing something you want) as well as a video of EVO 4G playing a Youtube video of a Starcraft 2 match.

Google Devs: "Android 2.2 Froyo Upgrades Technically Possible On Every Phone On The Market, Even The G1" [Google I/O Blitz Coverage, Day 1]

Due to the amount of information crammed into day 1 of the Google I/O conference, I am blitzing through everything that happened, keeping it short and to the point.

Many of the older device owners and early adopters will be glad to hear this one - I've talked to a bunch of Google folks in charge of developing Android at the Google I/O, and they told me that technically it would be possible to put Froyo on any device on the market now, including the G1.
