Nokia Sponsors Mobile Application Contest

Great news for application developers – Nokia and the inventor of Segway, Dean Kamen, are funding a contest just for you. In a time of powerful, impressive cell phone technology, mobile applications are dominating the industry. If you think you’ve got what it takes to create an application that revolutionizes the way we use mobile devices in the real (as opposed to conceptual) world you could be the winner of a $25,000 prize. Prizes will be awarded in the categories of Eco-Challenge, Emerging Markets and Technology Showcase.

Just a few notes on entry: The Eco-Challenge submissions should focus on building mobile tools to help users take care of the environment. Emerging Markets submissions should focus on ways to improve peoples’ lives in developing nations, including health care and agricultural implementations. The Technology Showcase encompasses all applications running on S60 or Series 40, whether it is commercial or casual, brand new or already on the market. Entries are due December 15, 2008 so get started now. With each prize awarded, one thing is for sure – we’re about to see a lot of innovation in mobile application development.

Check out the complete rules and regulations here then submit your entry here.
