Google I/O’s 6,000 attendees all get free Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 7 tablet and Nexus Q

Google I/O 2012 is just kicking off, but right from the very first keynote the event has been super intense - Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, the Google Nexus 7 tablet, the Nexus Q device that connects to the cloud and Project Glass going up for pre-order. What more can you wish for?
How about that each one of the 6,000 developers in attendance get a Samsung Galaxy Nexus phone, a Google Nexus 7 tablet and the Nexus Q? Is that a good enough value for those $900 entrance tickets?
We think it is - the cheering after the whole “value pack” developers got went on and on. You can try not to be jealous in the comments below, but is it really possible?

I know what you mean. Imagine what they will be giving out next year. lol I am so there. $900.00 is nothing. I will meet you there & I will get us a bottle of Johnnie Walker Red. How does that sound.

Apple WWDC tickets: $1600 Gift: the fact to know that iOs every time is looking more to android. Google I/O tickets: $900 Gift: a Galaxy Nexus, a Nexus 7, a Nexus Q and the fact to know that Google loves you...

Let's see.. WWDC - costs 1600$. People get for free... nothing. Google I\O costs 900$ - people get for free a Galaxy Nexus (200$ worth), Nexus 7(200$ worth), Nexus Q (250$ worth). That leaves entry down to 250$ 1600$ - Apple 250$ - Google Know the difference. :)

you realize that people who go to google io are android fans and developers. half of them probably have a galaxy nexus already and i bet some might have motorola xoom so 2 galaxy nexuses might not be that useful

A free Galaxy Nexus = profit to be made. Plus, as a developer it's severely convenient to have an extra on end just in case of brick or maybe wanting to have two builds installed.
