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.
