I/O 2011

Reminder: Google I/O 2012 Registration opens tomorrow

In case anyone managed to miss the news, Registration for Google's popular I/O event is tomorrow but there is only a small limited number of available seats and registration so you'll have to hurry if you want to get in. Previous years the event sold out literally in minutes so we urge you to read on below for the time and details.

Displays Breaking on Galaxy Tab 10.1 [Google I/O Limited Edition]

We've got an account here of a until-recently-proud owner of a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Google I/O Limited Edition Android tablet. An account that tells a story of one of the most evil errors a person holding a $500 device might hope never to have to experience - the fact that this device was free notwithstanding. This error is a physical error - it appears that the glass covering the front of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 is coming loose. Luckily the person who we're speaking with here has gotten word back from the Samsung support line on what he should do to fix this situation.

LG Optimus 3D Out in the Wild, on eBay

It looks like more Google I/O gear is making its way on to eBay. I would keep the cool things like that for myself, but that is just me. From what we are hearing, and seeing there is now multiple LG Optimus 3D phones showing up on Ebay and they are listed as "dev" phones. Listed as new in box, and never used. From what we understand LG gave a few of these out to developers from Google I/O at a LG side event, and some are deciding to sell them rather than keep them... or develop for the device.

Google I/O Keynote and Session videos now online

With tickets for Google I/O 2011 selling out in short order, Google made a lot of developers - and Android enthusiasts - feel better by promising to stream the bulk of the event online. Now, the search giant has put all those keynote and I/O session videos online. The opening keynotes for both days are probably going to be of most interest, with Google revealing Android Ice Cream Sandwich, its plans for Google TV and the new Music Beta. If you prefer to read not watch, you can check out all our I/O coverage using the I/O 2011 tag. Sessions, meanwhile, can be found here and include Android Market information, 3D rendering and API best-practices. Full details at http://www.google.com/io.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Review [Google I/O Limited Edition]

It's been what seems like forever since I last held this fantastic piece of industrial design. Back at CTIA 2011, we got to peek behind the scenes at a couple of dummy units from Samsung, one of them the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9, the other the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, essentially the same unit you see here. The differences begin in that the dummy unit had no working machinery inside, a microSD slot where now there's nothing, and this limited edition unit has a white back with a hoard of Androids marching forward etched inside it. This device is what we expect to be nearly the same as what you'll be purchasing in June, so it's time to give this fantastical edition a complete once over!

Google I/O Day 2 Keynote : In Line and Nearly In

We're in line again, this time toting a few more devices (though we're none the heavier thanks to the Galaxy Tab 10.1 weighing approximately nothing at all,) and we're attempting to get pumped up for the second day's big keynote. What should we be expecting today? More than likely a whole 'lotta Chrome, but you never know, might be some Android tidbits in this event as well. Stay tuned to Android Community and our sister site SlashGear for all the coverage your eyeballs can handle.

Ice Cream Sandwich – Full Google I/O Details

Lets begin this chat by noting that they certainly did not say a whole heck of a lot. At the first hour-long keynote speech of the conference, Google whipped through a plethora of news bits, Ice Cream Sandwich certainly not the one winning the attention contest. The greatest moment was the reveal of the excellent logo mark that'll be coming along with the update to Android, it and the name being a metaphor for exactly what the new system would be doing for the mobile OS: integrating it. Sandwiching it, if you will. It's going to be oh - so - tasty.

Entire Google I/O 2011 Keynote: Day One [VIDEO]

The first and undeniably most action-packed keynote from Google I/O 2011 is up now, covering what Google is calling their three Ms. In Momentum, they spoke about the power and speed of Android in how well it's doing in the world today, everything from 100 million activations and 4.5 billion installs of apps. Next in Mobile, they covered the newest upgrade for Android, version 3.1, the next step in Honeycomb for tablets and Google TV, Ice Cream Sandwich aka "one Android release everywhere," and more. The list continues and the video is up!

Nexus 3 Confirmed by Offhand Comment?

Man, it is not my favorite thing to do to be posting a rumor like this, especially when it can be construed to mean basically anything. Apparently when "asked about the Nexus 3" by Taylor from AndroidandMe, Andy Rubin noted the following: "The Nexus has been the thing that we used to set the bar, and there's always going to be new ones coming out in the market…we'll make an announcement at some point in the future." Wouldn't the man say the same thing if you asked him whether or not future versions of Android would be coming out?

Win a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 by Voting in [AC vs SG Unboxing War Number One!]

You know very well that unboxing videos are about the least interesting - yet necessary - posts we do here in the tech review business, and we know it too, so we thought we'd spice things up a bit with an unboxing that'll never be forgotten. A war! A big huge fight between Android Community and our sister site SlashGear. In Android Community's corner is our hero Ben Bajarin, in the brown shirt, unboxing the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. In SlashGear's corner is Vincent Nguyen in the red shirt, also unboxing...the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. Who will win? Who will come out on top? And how does this all add up to you getting a free Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1?
