Submit an app suggestion for WP7 and you can win $5,000 & a WP7 handset
The blasting heat of summer may be just beginning for most of us, but that's not stopping Microsoft from already pursuing the build up of its app development for Windows Phone 7. As we closely approach the target launch date for Microsoft's next generation mobile platform, the availability of quality apps from the onset can hinge on its overall success. That's why they're starting early by throwing a contest where they are looking for ideas on a great app for their platform with a grand prize winner receiving $5,000 for their idea and a brand spanking new Windows Phone 7 handset. So how do you apply for this? Anyone can simply throw in their suggestion by recording a maximum 90 second clip or write a maximum 1,000 word listing. Ultimately, the winner will have their app submission be created and released for free by Microsoft. Although there can just be one winner at the end of all of this, thankfully Microsoft will also be giving out 16GB ZuneHDs to the next four runner-ups.

Only flaw in your expert analysis is the tiny factoid that Symbian is still the leading OS Worldwide and that does'nt look to change anytime soon. So much for expert analysis. LOL

So much for ignorance. Symbian is history. It WILL be gone. Nokia is already losing it's market-share. And it will collapse. Nothing will save it. Except perhaps a transition to Android. The future belongs to Apple, and Android. And if we look at the top smartphones out there (to clarify - smartphone = a phone which can run apps - something that only Android and Apple possess in acceptable quantities) - so does the present. Get rid of your Nokia device today. I will, when my contract ends.

Please spare everyone the app story It's all you have to say over and over You seriously need some fresh material dude LOL Yes, I agree. So much for ignorance.....LMAO You can redeem yourself by answering a question though....What is the leading OS Worldwide right now?

What is right now is irrelevant. I've told you before. Nokia is losing market share. Symbian is used less and less. Do you want to look at the world as it is today? Or do you want to look at what it will be in several years? Most people still use Symbian, because they use simple Nokia phones, and they THINK that they don't need anything better than that. However, as Smartphones become cheaper and more powerful, they also become more widespread. Thats a fact. So again I ask you - do you want to look at the world as it is today? Or look at the future - and adjust yourself to it. Symbian is going to die. Not completely - but enough in order to be removed very very fast from the top.
