Google I/O 2011 conference Overview of Major Announcements

For the last couple years the tech industry has looked forward to an annual two day event put on by Google at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, California. The event is called Google I/O Developers Conference and this is where Google showcases what is has been up. Google I/O 2011 as expected focused heavily on Android. The open source operating system with Google as it’s overseer has risen to great heights since it revealed it’s clunky head not that long ago and is reported to have been activated on 100 million devices worldwide with 400,000 new activations every day. Mix that in with over 200,000 applications available and almost 5 billion app downloads to date and you have a heavyweight of a platform that is open and free that rivals the closed system from Apple and it’s iOS devices.
