Vodafone goes app-hunting with €1,000,000 prize fund

Vodafone has announced a competition to find the best (most innovative and useful) mobile applications or ‘widgets’. There’s a total prize fund of one million Euro, with €100,000 available for the overall winner. Firstly, there’ll be eight country-wide heats in the UK, Ireland, Germany, Netherlands, Italy, Spain, Portugal and Greece. The winner in each country will receive €25,000 and will be entered into the pan-European final. The eight finalists will then face a public vote, with the overall winner being given €75,000. And when it’s finished, Vodafone says it’ll do the same next year.

For example, it combines contacts from compatible mobile phones with friends on Facebook, Windows Live Messenger and Google Talk to create a single address book called Vodafone People.

There’s also going to be an app store called the Vodafone Shop.

The mobile phone tries to grow up

Mark Bridge writes:

The end of civilisation. The dawn of the future. Mobile phones are somewhere in the middle. Once seen as novelties for people with too much money, the mobile phone is now ubiquitous. And with that ubiquity comes an acceptance that they’re just tools. Doesn't it?

Which is why I was surprised to see a news article from Voice, a trade union that wants mobile phones banned from nurseries because of concern about inappropriate photographs.
