Android Dev’s Ericcson is Giving Away $20,000 Dollars!

Ericcson, half of Sony Ericcson has announced that they are holding the Ericcson’s Application Awards, Code for Cash 2011 development contest.

The contest, which has a pot of $15,00 euro or around $20,000 American dollars, is open to any team of two or more developers anywhere in the world.  The developers must use at least one Ericcson labs API and relate to the theme “Connected Thing”. Members from the full team of Sony Ericcson will help judge the contest.

The contest is in it’s second year. Last year a development team from Ireland won with an application they called “CallerProfiler”. CallerProfiler combined social networking with IP Telephony to display information from social networking sites when a call is received.

The deadline for entries is March 31, 2011 and the winners will be announced in June 2011, and again it’s open to developer teams of 2 or more anywhere in the world. For complete details, and information on how to get the Erricson Labs API kit go to http://erricsonapplicationawards.com
