Betavine’s Widget Competition

Betavine, a Vodafone Group R&D lab, is offering developers a chance to win £20,000 in a mobile widget competition - yes, that's £20,000! Developers are invited to submit widgets that run on the Opera for Mobile 9.5 platform, which is included on Nokia 6210, Nokia N78, Nokia N95 8gb and Nokia N96 devices.

In order to get started with your widget, we recommend having a look at our Widgets SDK, and especially at the articles on mobile and cross-device development and the tools section. Note that you can use Opera Dragonfly in combination with the Widget Emulator to debug your widgets.

There is also Betavine's own Get Started page and an extensive Mobile Widgets User Experience Guidelines PDF document by Vodafone.

So, if this competition sounds like something for you, sign up at Betavine, and let us know what you come up with :-) You can even submit your creation to the Opera Widgets site!
