Nokia's Calling All Innovators Contest Is Looking For The Next Great Mobile App

Back To School: WhiteyBoard Now Cheaper, Smaller

Nokia, fresh off implying that using Android would be like “pee[ing] in their pants for warmth during the cold winter,” has a new (and rather elaborate) contest to encourage you to create the next great mobile app. OK! It’s called the 2010 Call All Innovators, and there’s “$10 million in cash, devices, and marketing prizes up for grabs.”

Now, being a Nokia contest, the app(s) would have to be for the Nokia N8 (and “future Nokia devices”). I guess the idea is to encourage people in North America to, I don’t know, use a Nokia phone.

You go to Europe, plenty of Nokias to be found. You walk about the U S of A, eh, not too many of those floating around these days.

Nokia’s encouraging iOS and Android developers to enter—you’ll just have to make yourself at home with the Nokia Qt SDK.

Good luck to all!
