Jason from Google just posted the top 50 mobile applications which where selected in the challenge part 1, round 1. Looks like there are a lot of companies and people from Europe – like the Zelfi AG in Germany. So, innovation is not a Silicon Valley only phenomenon I’m really curious to get more information on all the top 50 apps.
Congratulations to all the developers behind the to 50 apps!
Google is running fast forward with the Mobile-Handset-Operating-System, called android, they are developing with the joint forces of the Open Handset Mobile Alliance. To attract the creativity of developers worldwide, they started a competition – or as Google likes to see it as the Android Developer Challenge. Google will provide 10 Million $ in awards for the best applications. So it might really be interesting for some developers out there – may be great seed capital for a new startup
Yesterday, on January 28, Google extended the deadline for the first round in the Android Developer Challenge to April 14 2008. There will be a second challenge when the first handsets ship. And those first android handsets should ship in the second half of 2008.
So, get your mobile applications on track
