Nokia competition urges hackers to modify N900

Nokia competition urges hackers to modify N900
What better way to move a handset forward by implementing some unique twists to it that aren’t traditionally conventional. Add that to a contest and you’ve got yourself a recipe to place your fledging platform into the hands of inventive creators. Nokia is throwing another contest, called the “Nokia PUSH N900 MOD IN THE USA”, to hackers and modders alike who can give the spiffy N900 something to make it stand out. Of all the entries, only three will be chosen and will be judged during CTIA 2009 in Las Vegas where they have a chance to win prizes between $3,000 and $10,000. We have a feeling that Nokia wants to find the most ingenious tweaker out there that can turn the N900 to something more interesting like a robot or remote control – sure they can add in some visual flare to really catch the gaze of users. You never know what can come out of it; maybe we’ll see an N900 that can dice and slice food products into a gelatinous mess for easy consumption? We’re ready to see what these modders can do to really shed the light on Maemo’s emphatic handset in the N900.
