Google I/O developer conference sells out in less than 30 minutes

Tickets for Google I/O went on sale at 7 AM Pacific time and sold out quickly.  The first tickets to sell out were the academic tickets at $300 each. These choice tickets were gone within thirty minutes. Shortly after those sold out, the more expensive standard tickets ($900) were no longer available.

Google I/O is popular among developers who get to learn more about Android and often receive freebies during the event. Last year, the company handed out Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablets with Android Honeycomb. This year, rumors suggest the bonus device could be the Nexus tablet, a low-cost slate expected to land with a $200 price tag.

According to The Next Web, Google will live stream the Keynote and all key sessions. All session videos will be available after 24 hours and there will be extended viewing parties worldwide.
