    When: Tuesday, May 14. 7:30 PM
    Where: Terra Gallery, 511 Harrison Street, San Francisco, CA
    What: Lookout's annual Google I/O kickoff party. Drinks will start flowing at 7:30 pm at Terra Gallery in San Francisco and we'll have tasty food and awesome entertainment. Free giveaways for the first 200 who show up at the door (arrive early: we had a line around the block last year!). *Please not that this event is 21 and over.
    How: Take a minute to tell everyone what has you most excited for Google I/O this year. We'll read through them all and pick 10 winners.


    You'll need to be able to actually be in San Francisco on Tuesday, May 14 -- so please, don't enter if you can't or won't. Let people who can use them win, and karma will catch you next time

    This contest is open to adults (over 21) only, there's gonna be booze. You have been warned.

    We're going to run this one until 11:59 PM (ET) Sunday, May 5. The winners will get an email with details about how to register with Lookout. This means you'll have to have registered here at Android Central with a real email address, one that you check

    Good luck!

    My biggest hope is to see how we're going to utilize these new NVidia processors comming out. That 5/4 setup they were talking about sounded awesome, but is the software ready to use it effectively?

    I live 4 blocks from Union Square in San Francisco. Won't be able to attend actual I/O due to work.

    I'm looking forward to learning about some of the advanced capabilities I can program into my current and future Android apps. I'm also hoping they allow me to buy Google Glass. Also, the opportunity to have classes taught by Android experts from Google. And finally, the networking opportunities with other Lloyd... I mean Android lovers, including other Android Central faithful.

    My friend and I bought tickets and hotel room before the tickets came out. Even though we didn't get in, we are still going to San Francisco for the trip. I would love to be able to go to this. I think we were both super excited to see any updates for android or the developer community

    What is most exciting about Google I/O events?!?!? Definitely being able to hang around and talk with other Android enthusiasts is the best part of any Google/Android/App party! At no other time am I able to talk in detail about such things. Also awesome about this year's Google I/O is the code labs! How awesome would it be to be in a room full of experts teaching you about Android code? For me, that'd be incredible! I live 40 minutes away in Fairfield, CA and would love to attend Lookout's party!

    I was looking forward to the Google X phone, but it doesn't look like that's going to happen. I am really excited to see Glass and what they've been able to come up with over the past year. As an educator, I am also anticipating something in terms of Chrome or Apps for Education, and the use of Hangouts and Communities in the classroom.

    I bought my ticket to San Francisco before I got no ticket to I/O (and I'm still mad at Google Wallet). This could help make my trip worthwhile. I'll be there for the week and am still looking forward to all the stuff that will be presented, even if I'll only see it second hand.

    The pure essence of Android, and what has become of Android over the years especially with Matias Duarte is electrifying. The future is very strong with Android and I would love to be able to experience it first hand, especially with a few of my favorite bloggers from Android Central and the rest of Mobile Nations.

    I was looking forward to the new Motorola X and KLP announcements, but it seems those might not happen this time around. Besides that, Glass seems to be something I might be willing to invest in once I see more about it. Maybe a new Nexus announcement?

    I'm looking forward to the Babble rumors, and seeing if Google will integrate all of it's services (Android, Glass, Now, Web) together into a more tight-knit family. Also, geeking out with everyone!

    I'll be there and I cannot wait to see Glass! I want to put it on my face. Also wouldn't mind seeing the mysterious X phone.

    I'd love to finally meet the AC crew in person, but there's always CTIA I guess.

    I'll be out there for my 2nd I/O starting the 13th. This something I would love to go to!

    Hopefully I will get my actual invite for Glass before I get out there. I registered last year at I/O but still haven't gotten my official "come and get it" email. Last I got was the email saying they were "shipping" soon...

    Excited about the possibilities for the Chromebook Pixel, maybe they'll offer a Developer Edition of the Chromebook Pixel like the HTC One Developer Unlocked and
    Samsung S3 Unlocked Developer phones? It really doesn't make sense to have it as a consumer device. Why not add two more personalities to it and have it run Linux
    (with Eclipse, etc) and pure Android, along with ChromeOS. Imagine a log on screen with user login profiles beside a pull down menu for the OS to boot into - ChromeOS,
    Android, and Linux (Ubuntu). An android developer wouldn't have to use the slow ADK android emulator, they could just reboot or log out of Linux and boot into Android mode.
    The ultimate would be to build the Chromebook so it is also hackintosable, so you can easily put MacOS on it as a fourth OS personality and
    run applications like Ableton Live and Final Cut Pro X that just aren't ported to Linux!

    I'm really excited about the general direction of Android. But here are a couple of things that really get me excited: the new version of Android, rumors about Google games, and news about Google TV. I really want to see the entire Google ecosystem be fully integrated
