Participate in Contests…be showcased at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona

Forum Nokia recently announced the “Calling All Innovators Competition” for mobile developers worldwide. The competition is aimed at content which is unique and innovative on both the Series60 and the Series40 platforms and will close on 15 December 2008.

The highlight of the contest is that the winners can win $25,000, opportunities to promote and distribute to mobile consumers worldwide, and a showcase for the application at next year’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

Of the 3 categories for submission, the “Technology Showcase” category specifically mentions that the application can be developed using either Flash Lite, Java, Python or any open source.

“This category offers the opportunity to show off your technical kung fu and introduce the world to your true killer app! Open to all technologies, if it runs on S60 or Series 40, then we want to see it! Regardless if it has just been created or you have been selling it for a while, casual or commercial, we want to showcase the best of the best. Be it on Flash Lite, Java, Python, or open source. If it’s a game, enterprise solution, Web-based widget, or just a cool application that will enhance the mobile user experience, then this is the category to enter.”

This contest comes close to the heels of the IMGAwards Submissions (closing September 22) which too is giving an opportunity to developers to submit games and win a chance to showcase their company and the winning entry at the Mobile World Congress in February next year.

  1. Hi I am beginner to Flash lite and want to develop for mobile phones. Which is the best actionscript version to develop for actionscript 1.1, 2.1 or 3.0?

  2. Flash Lite 2.0+ (includes 2.0, 2.1 and 3.0) all support Actionscript 2.0 (some classes are excluded). These Flash Lite versions give you more control while writing code as compared to FL 1.1.

    Also as the Flash Lite has matured and devices have become more powerful, features have been added to make the mobile experience as good as the web.

    You can follow this link to view FL tutorials and know more about FL device support and API usage.
