colordev writes: Today Nokia and AT&T announced a mobile software coding contest; with $10M in price money. That may be exactly what is needed for keeping the Symbian in competition with Android. I am certain LOTS of programmers are following this historic battle of the mobile platforms. Sony Ericsson told yesterday it would not be making any new Symbian devices and instead focusing in Android. That left Nokia pretty much alone with Symbian and now it likes to find new coding ‘friends’ for keeping the platform vital. Until this latest coding contest was announced the natural selection seemed to be eliminating Symbian.
The computer can't tell you the emotional story. It can give you the exact
mathematical design, but what's missing is the eyebrows.
