Google I/O Android Sessions

io-logoGoogle I/O is just around the corner and there is certainly a lot of buzz around mobile and Android.  Each day has a full track dedicated to Android and there are two Fireside Chats specifically targeting our little green buddy.  The sessions range from beginner to advanced, with three sessions still “TBA”.  I’d be willing to bet that these are reserved to showcase features and development practices for Android 2.2.

The first Fireside Chat is with Android Handset manufacturers:  Dino Brusco (Motorola), Bill Maggs (Sony Ericsson), Joon Kang (LGE), Ciaran Rochford (Samsung), Eric Chu (Google; moderator).  Oddly enough Peter Chou (HTC) is missing from this line-up.  The second chat is with the Android team with Chris DiBona moderating.  It’s at the end of day two.  They probably did this so any Android announcements would have a chance to sink in.

The DroidDog team will be watching the tweet streams and any live coverage that will be available, so we can report the latest and greatest from the event.
