Free Smartphones? Shoulda Been at I/O, Man.

The hits just keep coming from Google I/O in San Francisco today – Google TV, Android 2.2, an iTunes competitor – it’s been an impressive day thus far. And while moments ago, I was content to sit on my ass here at home and do little more than muse and smile, I suddenly find myself cranky I hadn’t bothered to check out the event in person.

Why?

Google just gave everyone at I/O a free EVO 4G.

It’s alright, don’t tear up. I feel the same: a crushing weight of sadness, as I sit here looking at my LG 8100 with no 6 key and a slightly broken screen. And MiniSD? Who the hell uses that?

In any case, ‘don’t be evil’ truly seems to be the order of the day for Google, who have pulled this ‘free phone’ stunt more than once before. It’s a good stunt, Google. It is.

So what can we take away from this? I think ‘register early for next Google event’ should be a given on everyone’s iCal right about now.
