T I Developer Challenge

Of course the Android Developers Challenge, with its overall 10 Million Dollars of prize money, was attracting even more software-developers to create a bunch of really useful applications. On the other side many voices said, that this was no good choice from Google, because it would lead to less code-sharing, as many would fear sharing their ideas with a community, during the first important months after the SDK release.

There were two Challenges planned:

• Android Developer Challenge I: Submissions up to April 14, 2008

• Android Developer Challenge II: This part will launch after the first handsets built on the platform become available in the second half of 2008.

In the Android Developer Challenge I, the 50 most promising entries submitted by April 14 will each receive a $25,000 award to fund further development. Those selected will then be eligible for even greater recognition via ten $275,000 awards and ten $100,000 awards.

Applications submitted to the Challenge were supposed to be innovative and demonstrate all the capabilities of the Android platform, like location based services, media consumption, gaming and social networking, to enrich mobile experience.
