In my review for the Samsung Galaxy Note, I mentioned Samsung was going to be pushing hard for S Pen integration in Android apps, but I didn’t know they were going to go this hard. Sammy announced that they’re throwing a friendly competition between app developers to see who can come up with the best way to integrate the S Pen into their existing app, or come up with an entirely original app form scratch.

The winner will receive $205,000 in prizes, including a $100,000 cash prize. Even if your app isn’t all that good, you can still get a $2,000 cash prize plus a Galaxy Note for winning on honorable mention. Here’s the breakdown:

  • Best Overall App, Grand Prize – $100,000
  • Best Overall App, Second Prize – $50,000
  • Best Overall App, Third Prize – $25,000
  • Category Honorable Mention (10) – $2,000 and a Samsung Galaxy Note (estimated retail value, plus tax and shipping $800)
  • Popular Choice Award – $2,000

Makes me wonder why I never took those college courses in Java. You can get full details and find out how to enter by following the source link below. Good luck!
