Google IO

Update: It's official -- a tweet from Google Developers confirms that registration opens at  7AM PDT on Mar. 13. Make a note of it, and good luck to everyone hoping to score a ticket!

Original story: Here's an interesting tidbit for anyone hoping to land a ticket to Google I/O this year. The registration date for the three-day dev conference seems to have shown up briefly on the official I/O site, before being swiftly pulled. If the info that showed up is to be believed, registration will open at 7AM PDT on Wednesday, Mar. 13 -- two months ahead of the event itself.

Last year's registration sold out in record time, so if the info above is accurate, would-be attendees will need to be hitting that registration site at 7AM sharp on Mar. 13.

You'll probably want to wait for the official confirmation before penciling the date into your diary, however. We'll keep you updated with any news as it emerges.

is it pretty safe to say that attendees will receive
the upcoming new Nexus tablet courtesy of Google? :(
Come to think of it, does a purchased ticket guarantee
you at least some free stuff?

What about the recent thread on XDA that said Google
will raise tickets prices(AGAIN) to $1500 this year? :(
Too rich for my blood... :(

Hey ! just a question, did anybody here knows how to get an "Academic Ticket" ?

I think I could apply to one of them but I don't know the requirements.

threepackape says:

well..... are you an academic? :D

I know my friend's kid got one and he was only a college freshman last year.
He flew from Boston to attend the event, which I thought was pretty crazy.

You need to be a student (or teacher too I guess :P), they'll ask for a copy of your current enrollment when you show up to get your badge, or at least that's how it was in 2011. I don't recall any hoops I had to jump through with my .edu email or anything.

Sounds like it would be cheaper to just buy whatever they hand out.
