PalmSource and Orange announce a smartphone application contest
PalmSource and Orange Collaborate to Encourage the Development of Palm OS Wireless Applications

PalmSource, Inc. and Orange have announced the PalmSource/Orange Smartphone Application Contest, co-sponsored by both companies. The contest, which begins today, encourages the development of Palm OS wireless applications that use the Orange general packet radio service (GPRS) and its ability to wirelessly transmit data and applications. Orange counts more than 50 million subscribers worldwide. The contest rules will be made available on request.

The awards will be presented during the final day of the Orange Code Camp, which is scheduled for 13-15 September in Poitiers, France. The "best-of-class" grand-prize contest winner will take home a Segway Human Transporter, while category winners will receive an Orange Treo 600 smartphone from palmOne, Inc. The four categories include: localization; best use of a wireless network in a stand-alone application; most innovative use of a data network; and best phone utility.

Orange Code Camp registrants can enter the PalmSource/Orange Smartphone Application Contest by emailing their application to PPMW_Smartphone_Contest@palmsource.com. Entries submitted by 6 September will be eligible for feedback from PalmSource technical staff prior to the Orange Code Camp. Final entries are due by 8 a.m. local time on 15 September, the final day of the event.

The Orange Code Camp takes place September 13-15, 2004 in Poitiers, France, and is limited to 250 Orange Partner members. Attendees will receive technical support, guidance and knowledge enabling the development of applications that meet Orange's requirements for possible commercialization to the carrier's customer base of more than 50 million users.

The Orange Code Camp is a three-day event where developers can:

  • Learn about and fully understand Orange mobile application requirements and the various routes-to-market;
  • Become familiar with development, testing, certification and validation requirements from Orange and the various operating systems;
  • Train and code, build and customize applications for possible commercialization with Orange; and
  • Physically test applications against devices across the Orange 2G and 3G networks.
