Nokia representatives have announced that the company intends to launch a development contest named ‘Connect Coder’ to attract grass roots development support for the company’s N-Gage cell phone hybrid.
The contest opens on September 21st and challenges any developer to submit game designs and demos created on the freely available Nokia Series 60 development kit. The contest features a total prize pot worth €30,000 ($32,581), which will be splint into a number of smaller prize amounts - the largest of which is €15,000 ($16,291).
Each winning entry will also win a trip to GDC and the chance to pitch the idea to Nokia officially. Further information can be found at http://www.forum.nokia.com/games
