Sony Ericsson Sponsoring Android Development Contest
Sony Ericsson appears to be very serious about their plans with Android.Â Rather than just releasing a handset or two with the platform, they’re taking their cause straight to developers.Â We’ve learned of a contest organized by Nikkei BP ITpro (translated) which is sponsored by Sony Ericsson Mobile Communications and Android Japan Association.Â Called the Android Application Award (A3) 2010 Spring, the event is already underway.Â December 1st was the kickoff date with submissions are being accepted through April 16, 2010.Â Results are slated to be announced in May, although dates are noted as ‘subject to change’.
Much like the Android Developers Challenges, the entries are broken down into various genres.Â The top winner for each category is set to receive 1,00,000 yen (approximately $10,983 US).Â Apps must be written to work with Android 1.6 (Donut) and for screen sizes 480 Ã— 854 pixels.
