Google Is The New Oprah, Donut, ADC2 & More at Google IO!

After hearing 8 different speakers talk about upcoming Google developments, product launches and services ranging from Chrome’s support of HTML5 to embeddable Web Elements, we were kind of wondering where all the Android? They merely saved the best for last as Romain Guy, Android Software Engineer, stepped up to talk about our shared passion.

First he talked about Android Donut, the development branch following in the footsteps of Cupcake. And then… I’m not sure you’ll believe this…

THEY ANNOUNCED ANDROID DEVELOPER CHALLENGE 2!
That’s right folks. We’ve been waiting WAY too long for ADC2 but looky looky it is HERE! Submissions through August, winner announced at the end of Fall and looks like Google is the new American Idol… User Voting is now part of the judging process!

YOU get a phone and YOU get a phone and YOU get a phone
google-android-oprah
Scratch American Idol… Google is the new Oprah. Everyone who attended Google IO gets a free unlocked Android Phone with 30 days free data. Are you freaking kidding me? Now I just feel terrible I couldn’t be there – surely would have given this away to a Phandroid reader or AndroidForums member. Dangit. That is 4,000 Android Phones they just gave away with the instructions for developers to GO DEVELOP!

Don’t Miss Tomorrow’s Keynote
That is the advice they finished up with. Hey parents: Ear muffs, or eye muffs or blindfolds or whatever you gotta do because I can’t hold this in any longer. HOLY CRAP!

Exciting times! Too bad they didn’t announce a teleporter because I wish I was in San Francisco right now.
