Remember back a few weeks, when HTC issued a C&D to LevelUpStudio to remove Beautiful Widgets, because it was too similar to their Sense UI widgets? Well, now HTC is sponsoring the 2010 NAVTEQ Global LBS Challenge to do just that.
Here is what they want developers to create:
Create a top notch location based services solution for an HTC Hero widget, and HTC will consider your entry for the Best Home Screen Widget Design prize. The HTC Hero widget you develop must bring valuable information to users instantly for an at-a-glance view on the home screen of the phone. –HTC
Last years NAVTEQ Global LBS Challenge Grand Prize winner was NAVITIME, who won in the category of Navigation.
