Google I/O sells out in less than 30 minutes

Google I/O sells out in less than 30 minutes
Did you get your tickets to Google I/O this morning? We warned you two weeks ago that the tickets tend to sell out quickly, and this morning our forecast came true in a scant 28 minutes. That’s despite the fact that this year’s I/O raised the price to $900, and added an extra day to the conference.

Google I/O is largely aimed at developers of Google’s various ecosystems, including Android and Chrome. The meetings have achieved greater notoriety the last few years as Google has given away some pretty sweet goodies to attendees, and often makes big announcements during the keynote addresses. Last year the Android keynote unveiled Google Music (Beta), the Android@home initiative (which we expect to hear more about this year), and revealed the name and logo of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

If you missed out on a ticket this morning you can still watch the keynotes online – they are streamed live. Even the developer sessions that follow are available to watch online, although you have to wait a short time before they are posted. If you are still desperate to pick up a seat at I/O, you’ll need to watch the eBays and Craig’s Lists of the world…and be prepared to spend a significant premium for the privilege.

Meanwhile, for those of you without the time to attend or even watch a couple hours of Googlers talking to you, PA will be reporting on whatever newsworthy topics come up. Just tune in here June 27th-29th, and we promise to provide whatever mobile news emanates from Google’s developer meeting this year.

$900 for tickets to a conference? Hmm, some of us have rent to pay, no thanks.

Yup I agree, that's a whole month for me. But my issue is I live in Maryland and the Google conference is on the other side of our country. I would spend alot to just fly back and forth. Haha. :(
