Lookout Mobile Security Throwing Party on Eve of Google IO; We Have 30 Tickets to Give Away!

Google I/O 2011 is but a few short weeks away, where we’ll get our annual glimpse into the future of Android and other Google development.  As many of you readers are also developers and enthusiasts, we know you’ll making the trip to San Francisco to get a first-hand look for yourself.  Should you happen to get into town a day early, you will no doubt want to join Lookout Mobile Security at an “iconic San Francisco art gallery*” for a party!  The festivities kick off at 8:00PM PST where guests will enjoy Le Truc’s famous pulled pork tacos, washed down by a cold beverage from Lookout’s favorite local microbrews (Big Daddy IPA, Anchor Steam,21st Amendment IPA).

As you saw in the headline, we have thirty tickets to give away to you guys and gals. Actually, that’s only half right as each ticket gets to bring a guest as well. So, really we have up to 60 spots to give away. And as if that weren’t enough chances to win, our AndroidGals are giving away another 30 sets of tickets too!


Leave a comment here with your Google IO predictions as they pertain to Android. What do you expect to see announced or demonstrated? You don’t have to be right to win, we’re just curious to see what you are thinking. We’ll grab 30 names and email addresses and pass them along to Lookout where they’ll be in touch. As this contest is for a select group of people attending Google IO, please indicate that you are attending in the comments. We’d love for anyone and everyone to share their guesses but we don’t want to award a prize to someone who isn’t even going. Please be fair, kids.  We’ll confirm your email address works and that you do intend to go on a first-come, first-serve basis!

*Lookout has not yet announced the name of the location but promises to do so in short order.

    Looking forward to GoogleIO 2011. News about Google TV announced last year, Android Ice Cream and Chrome OS.

  • aceperry

    I’m going to google io, got really lucky! My predictions: there will be an in-app payment announcement for android, Google and Paypal will partner for a new payment option – don’t know what platform but I know they’ve been working closely, an updated and refreshed Honeycomb release that is the equivalent of iOS, ChromeOS will be delayed as they add more features to the crippleware, and Intel is going to announce some kind of tablet. Did I miss anything important?

  • JN

    Im attending this year and its going to be my first. Im really looking forward as this year is all about tablets.
    I believe Android will be the biggest part of the show.
    Hoping for Android Cloud Music service to finally become official.
    Expecting Android 2.3.4 or Honeycomb for phones.
    NFC will become more clear and welcome partners.

    Good Luck everyone, hope to see you all there.

    I’ll be back at I/O once again this year and could not be more excited.

    I predict long lines at the registration tables this year where we will be kept cool with ice cream sandwiches while we take turns trying on the Android mascot costume and posing for a picture with a S. Jobs look-alike with a bad comb-over.
    Instead of a gift phone this year, we will all be asked to give a phone…which is cool because they are mostly past-gen iphones but nobody seems to want them and there’s not yet an app (for that) to make them an android or at the very least an iphone4.
    I also predict that there will be more women than men at this year’s I/O who will all receive Google tv boxes. As for the men, we will receive our customary short wait times for the washrooms and remote control units for the ladies’ new TVs.

    I can’t wait! See you all real soon!

    What I’m hoping at my first GoogleIO:

    * Google finally announces their music service
    * I would like to see Google TV taken a little seriously
    * Ice Cream!
    * Reboots of Arrested Development and Firefly (together would be hot)
    * And what is going to make this year’s IO so freakin’ special

    Less than 1,118,280 seconds until IO begins!!!

  • Mitch Granger

    I’ll be there! (not a prediction, a promise)

    Hidden NFC easter-eggs around the conference center (with prizes!)
    Pre-registration via android app.
    Android dance battle(I’ll get into the suit if I have to). That youtube dancing android was dope!

    Oh, and oodles of knowledge that I can’t wait to absorb!!

  • William Nordmann

    I am going to google io.
    I predict nexus tablet, google tv support in android, maybe even a netflix announcement wrapped with a security announcement.

  • Joseph Behar

    My best guess: Free Nexus S 4g and/or free android tablet.
    New announcements: better videochat integration, new version of gingerbread, more NFC partner.
    I’m hoping on this, cuz im staying with my grandfather in the city, and this’d be an awesome grandfather/grandson event.

    edit: can’t figure out how to delete old posts, (I am Jmnbehar from before)… so i’m making a new one to proudly state that I am in fact attending Google IO :D

  • Jw


    honeycomb honeycomb honeycomb

  • Dan Karney

    This will be my first year at I/O. I’m hoping we see video gChat for 2.x

  • Earl Driscoll

    I will be at I/O again this year thanks to winning the SCVNGR contest last year for a free ticket!!!

    I expect this year we will hear about some mashup of android and google tv.
    I expect everyone will leave with a Nexus Tablet.
    I hope there is a phone too……EVO 3D would be great.

  • Vertex

    I predict they will NOT be giving anything away, Chromium OS will be announced, and available for partners to use on their devices, however not available for general use yet. Google TV will increment a version, and include video chat. Google will announce Android was actually created by aliens. Here’s hoping they will announce 2.3.4 for the Nexus One

    • Vertex

      P.S. I will be attending Google I/O :)

  • Cybermeoo

    I predict a preview of ice cream sandwich along with an updated honeycomb to be released.

    I will be attending Google IO and also expect them to serve ice cream sandwiches.

  • Kevin Miller

    I’m going to Google I/O. With the move in Honeycomb, I’m either predicting a tablet, or more likely, something like the CR48, which they’ve been peddling around more. Given the amount of talks about the web app store, the latter is probably more likely.

  • Pentafive

    Chrome OS will be out, bunch of NFC, video chat, some new APIs
    Gift: Free Nexus S on Sprint and or a Google Chrome laptop/netbook

    I will be going to Google IO, have my confirmed pass and flight/hotel booked. Thanks!

  • Jefffeldman

    Free Nexus 4g, and free tablet. Android 4.0 will be demoed but not out for at least a year

    I will be attending google io

  • Evic Oropilla

    I will be attending! My guess is that they will introduce an app for google io 2012 that will NOT crash :)

    Seriously though Honeycomb of course!

  • fleces

    Aside the standard expectations, like updates on the status of google TV, honeycomb, improvements on existing goodies, I sort of expect the unveiling of some new software that will grant development privileges to the attendees of I/O… hopefully…

    Since it seems to be a theme to guess about the handouts, I don’t know what to expect there. On the one hand, they have given out some pretty nice gifts over the past years and those who went to GDC got a tablet and cr-48, so one would think I/O would get equal or better.
    On the other hand, idiots bought up tickets and sold them on ebay. Maybe it’s time for google to reset the kindness. Though they don’t seem to be vengeful, I would totally understand if we got nothing more than a pat on the back for attending I/O. I personally don’t really care since I am going to I/O with the hopes of early development opportunities on unreleased google software. That alone is worth more than a nexus phone.

    … also I want some pizza from Nizario’s. Castro special changed my life.

    (I am attending)

  • Nebrhd

    Anyone know when they are sending out the email’s to confirm? Trying to plan my trip to I/O.

  • Dave S

    I would love to Google I/O. I think Honeycomb leads to a tablet announcement or two. I would be surprised if the announcements did not mention “mobile” “local” and “social”. The real surprise will be if we’re really surprised! Did I say I’d love to be there?!

  • Anonymous

    I expect (hope!) they’ll be giving out a tablet (Xoom I expect), or possibly a ChromeOS notebook aswell as a 4G phone.

    I expect a Google TV “2” announcement, news about Android 4, promises about a stable 3.5.

    Yes, I will be attending Google I/O … can’t wait !
