Nokia has launched a global competition that brings consumers and developers together to create applications for Nokia’s Series 40 mobile phones.
The competition, titled Create for Millions, also provides developers an opportunity to bring Java and web apps to millions of consumers worldwide and win their share of cash and prizes valued at one million euros ($1.44 million).
Participants in the contest will submit their best ideas for the applications they’d like to see on Nokia Series 40 mobile phones.
Authors of the winning entries may see their ideas come to life in person at Nokia World later this year and can meet the developers who created them. In addition to a free expenses-paid trip to Nokia World, winning consumer’s can play with their new app on the latest Nokia Series 40 phone given during Nokia World.
Three Levant developers will also win a free expenses-paid trip to Nokia World.
Nokia’s Series 40 phones have experienced more than 35 percent growth in download volumes in the past two months making up about a quarter of the total downloads from Nokia’s Ovi Store, a statement said.
As the largest mobile platform in the world by volume, more than half a billion Nokia Series 40 mobile phones are in consumer’s hands today, it added. – TradeArabia News Service
