Developers looking for recognition, validation, and some cash should take not of the latest opportunity from Forum Nokia – 2006 Forum Nokia PRO Awards – this is a great way to get your LBS or other cutting-edge mobile application noticed and fast-tracked to market. I’m pleased to have once again been asked to participate as a judge, having just come off of judging the Handango Champion Awards. FYI, the awards are open to all members of Nokia’s advanced developer program, Forum Nokia PRO. More on this year’s awards program can be found at http://www.lbszone.com/content/view/1199/2/ or see forum.nokia.com. Developers looking for more mobile application competitions should also look into the Navteq LBS Challenge, WINBC developer awards, Handango Champion Awards, and awards offered by Orange at competitions held at the Code Camp events.
