Google IO tickets to be $900, go on sale March 27

If you’re an Android developer looking to head to San Francisco this June for Google IO then you’ll want to open your wallet up a little more than usual.  Tickets for this year’s three-day developer conference will be$900 when they go on sale March 27th.  Live on the west coast?  You will want to get up extra early that day as tickets start selling at 7AM PDT and will likely be gone by the time you finish that coffee.  Last year’s event sold out in just under an hour and we fully expect 2012’s to go just as fast.

You can head to Google IO’s website for the full details but we’ve gathered some of the pressing matters.
