box mobile developer challenge

Box is offering prizes ranging from $25,000 to free HP TouchPads for the developers who can build the best 10 mobile apps.  Between now and Sept. 9, Android, webOS, and iOS developers can submit their applications to the folks at box.net, who are looking for "the next generation of enterprise-grade mobile applications that will enable workers to be as productive in the field as they are in the office."

First prize is $25,000 US, second place walks away with $10,000 US, and the top ten all receive a free HP TouchPad.  In addition, the top two winners each get $5,000 in the InMobi ad network, and a chance to pitch their ideas to venture capital firm Draper Fisher Jurvetson, which is quite a nice prize as well.  If you're an application developer, and feel up to it, be sure to check it out -- and be sure let us know what you're working on when it's ready for us to have a peek.

Good to see someone pushing for Android in Enterprise (along with iOS and WebOS). Android hasn't been the strongest in that area.
Odd that one prize is a WebOS tablet :)
