Google I/O Event – Live Keynotes, Blogging From Google I/O

Google I/O Event – Live Keynotes, Blogging From Google I/O

First of all, let me start out by saying that if you showed up for the Google I/O event in San Francisco, you got a free android device. Man, that makes really consider showing up at next year’s Google I/O event.

Next, let me say that ZDNet had awesome live blogging coverage of the Google I/O event. You can check out ZDNet’s live blogging of Google I/O here.

The Google I/O even is an annual event that Google holds in San Francisco and is tailored to the engineering and developer’s world of applications, design, and software development. Google has a chance, at Google I/O, to share with the rest of the world, and the media that is present, what are some of the things that Google has been working on and some new technologies that are coming up.

Google I/O, this year, was made up mostly of people from other countries – which I thought was rather strange since the Google I/O conference is held here in the United States.

Here are some Google I/O keynote highlights from Mashable:
