BigAndroidBBQ Gathers Steam as Verizon, Swappa, Adobe and Orbotix Join Sponsors

The BigAndroidBBQ is now just three weeks away but that doesn’t mean big companies aren’t still trying to get in on the action. Today sees four highly reputable names join the growing list of sponsors with the advent of Verizon, Swappa, Adobe, and Orbotix getting involved.  These latest additions bring the total number of sponsors and exhibitors to 27, more than four times as many as last year’s event.  If you’re coming to the barbecue (you are, right?) then you’ll have plenty of goodies to play with and companies to talk to over the three day weekend.

If you get in on Friday then you will want to head to the Staybridge Suites for the AndroidGuys pool and pizza party.  We’re giving away a bunch of freebies (premium apps, accessories, etc.) to help kick the weekend off right.  Look for plenty of contests and prizes from our friends at  TeleNav, Slacker Radio, Lookout Mobile Security, and much more!)

Verizon, Swappa, Adobe and Orbotix to Sponsor Big Android BBQ

With the Big Android BBQ just 21 days away, the event continues to gather steam as four more mobile related companies have come on board to bring some exciting technology to the Android faithful who will be flocking to Austin at the end of this month.

With the addition of Verizon, Swappa, Adobe and Orbotix, the number of Sponsors and Exhibitors has risen to twenty-seven, more than four times of what the event had last year.  The staff of the BBQ is excited to be able to provide attendees with a broad spectrum of Android related devices, apps and ideas for their viewing pleasure.

Aaron Kasten, the Big Android BBQ Organizer is excited about the validation the event is receiving from several big name companies:

“With companies like Verizon, Adobe, Swappa and Orbotix coming on board with us, it shows the world that the BBQ is the real deal, that they realize we are serious about bringing together the Android Community with them in one place.  I am really excited about the idea of a normal everyday Android user being able to meet with some experts from Adobe and talk shop.  That is not a thing that can happen every day.  I am really pleased with our sponsor corps and the progress the volunteer staff has made in bringing these companies on board.”

Along with Adobe and Orbotix, Verizon has agreed to come on board as a sponsor, and hold a panel during the Saturday sessions dealing with their lightning fast LTE technologies.  Adobe will focus on helping developers and users work with their mobile offerings, and Orbotix will be talking about developing applications to be used with their Sphero balls.

Rounding things out, Swappa.com, the online market place that makes it easy for anyone to buy and sell fully functional, gently used Android devices, has come on as a sponsor to introduce people to their service, as well as facilitating live “Swappa meet” during the BBQ.
