Cool apps that surprise and delight mobile users, built by
developers like you, will be a huge part of the Android vision. To
support you in your efforts, Google has launched the Android Developer
Challenge, which will provide $10 million in awards -- no strings attached -- for great mobile apps built on the Android platform.
The award money will be distributed equally between two Android Developer Challenges:
In the Android Developer Challenge I, the 50 most promising entries
received by March 3 will each receive a $25,000 award to fund further

deliver a better mobile experience. Here are some suggested areas of
focus to get you started:
