 In twitter

The lovely Janaina Pilomia from Forum Nokia was kind enough to loan me a brand new Nokia N97 for blogging at the Mobile 2.0 Conference in Barcelona in June.

The device was put to good use, and is now looking for a new home.  Nokia are prepared to offer it to a mobile developer out there who could really use a Nokia N97 to test, finalise and demonstrate their Symbian application.

I’m going to ask for pitches from developers via twitter – so you will need to be able to convince me in less than 140 characters that you and your app are the most worthy of the N97.

Here are the rules, and my decision will be final

  1. You must be located in the UK or the EU and be able to demonstrate you are developing a mobile application for Symbian Series 60 (we will need to verify you via your website etc)

  2. You do NOT have a commercial solution yet and the N97 would really help you finalise and demo the application

  3. The 5 best / most imaginative tweets sent to @andrewgrill AND tagged #lc (for London Calling) by Friday 7th August 2009 will be selected by me and from this one will be selected to receive the N97.  Your details will then be sent to Forum Nokia and they will follow up with you and arrange delivery of the N97.

Feel free to leave a comment below also with a link and description of your mobile application but please note I will be selecting the winner via twitter.

Get tweeting and good luck!

  • Hi Andrew, i just tweeted my entry:

    "I’m building an app for patients who have suffered a stoke. Requires a connected game environment + touch."

    The N97 has the exact specification needed and we have developed on Symbian before.

    The application would be used for monitoring patients who have suffered a stroke and would be helpful for medication compliance and aid feedback.

    Good luck to the other entrants!
