Our second Mobile Add-ons Challenge has come to a close and the winners have been notified. Thanks to everyone who participated and submitted an add-on to the mobile gallery. We received a bunch of great concepts and innovations — some popular themes are focused around sharing (photos, messages) and user interface optimization (organization of tabs, navigating quickly). The below represent the winning add-ons and are recognized for their compatibility with the mobile device as well as their fulfillment of a need when using a mobile device.
The add-ons team is still working to formally review these add-ons. You’ll find that most of these add-ons are still in an “Experimental” state. If you’d like an early sneak peek of these add-ons on your Nokia N900, select the “Let me install an experimental add-on” button before selecting “Download”.
And the winners are….
