Hello All,

If you are interested in the future of Android you may want to consider the event below.



Google TV brings the Android open apps platform to the biggest screen and best sound system in most households.  At this event, the Google TV team will provide an overview of the Google TV platform, will pass on some tips for building Android apps for large screens, and will talk about the best ways to get apps onto users' televisions.   In the afternoon, the Google TV team will lead a hands-on, Google TV demonstration session.  The demonstration will highlight some of the apps that we think exemplify good practices for developing on Google TV as well as some of the new Google TV devices on the market.   If you have an existing app that you would like to port to Google TV, or have a design or an idea for a Google TV app, please bring them to discuss with the Google TV team.  In addition, developers planning to create or port an app for Google TV can meet with a Google TV team member for direct, 1:1 support.
