Have an app idea? Win a Nokia N8 and trip to Nokia World
I am pretty excited about the upcoming Nokia N8 smartphone and even more excited thinking that this is just the first Symbian^3 device with Symbian^4 and Symbian^5 still coming in 2011 and beyond. Nokia World is being held in September in London and I would love to be there, as I am sure some of you Nokia fans would too. There appears to be a way to make that happen for up to twelve of us with the Make My App competition that just kicked off. Nokia Beta Labs wants us to submit ideas for applications in four categories from now until 27 June.
You need to submit ideas in one of four categories (Think Green, Fun & Games, Easier Living, Better World) and then vote on the ones you want Nokia to make. The ten ideas that get the most votes each week will be shortlisted and guest judges will choose three ideas from each category at the end of the two months. These top twelve submitters (3 from each of the four categories) will get a trip to Nokia World, your idea will be made into an app, you will get a Nokia N8, and your app will be distributed on the Ovi Store. Visit the Make My App site to read all of the rules and get started. I know I am going to start thinking hard about good apps and get some submissions in myself since I would love both a Nokia N8 and a trip to Nokia World.
Keep in mind that a previous Nokia Experts contest winner won a sweet trip to Australia so readers here may have a real chance at one or more of these twelve trips.
