Nokia has just announced a developer contest, with prizes totalling $10 million in an attempt to get developers to create applications for their Nokia N8 smartphone and other devices.
The contest is being run in the US in conjunction with mobile provider AT&T, and the prizes will encourage developers to create apps for Nokia’s OVI store and for its range of smartphones.
“The commitment from Nokia is a clear message that we are serious about the North American market,” said Purnima Kochikar, VP Forum Nokia. “Developers have the tools, the support from AT&T and the marketing power of Nokia to get visibility for their apps”, she added. “Additionally, developers can make their Qt-based app available in Ovi Store to Nokia customers globally reaching tens of millions of customers.”
