Samsung Day: Contest rewards app HDTV widget developers

August 12, 2010 by  

Samsung must have a lock on today’s news, or maybe it just seems that way. Another fascinating item we got ahold of: It appears their HDTV app widget library has grown, but not fast enough for Sammy’s standards.

So now they’re offering a contest to rewards app developers who develop apps or widgets for the TV. Prizes include cash and entertainment systems as well, so it sounds good for any prospective app maker to get prizes for their toil and sweat.

For those acquainted with Java, XML and Flash Lite who are interested in getting their app up on TVs and Blu-ray players next to various popular apps, the contest runs from today to November 11, and requires a working app submission and video description as well.

By the end, 14 developers will walk away with between $1,000 and $200,000 each, plus a 3DTV, Blu-ray player and starter kit. Nice move, Samsung.
