BT launches Wi-Fi app challenge

Entrants to the BT Wi-Fi developer challenge must design a program that runs on Symbian phones, and makes use of a WLAN connection in some way.

The competition has been launched to “seek out the most innovative applications for Wi-Fi enabled mobile devices,” according to the competition website.

BT has an extensive wireless network in the UK, and encouraging developers to create such applications is an obvious ploy to increase hotspot usage.

Entrants will be judged on their programs innovative use of a Wi-Fi connection, ease of use, commercial potential and ease of execution. First place in the competition will win £1,000, with second and third places winning £250.

The competition opens on the 16 October, and the deadline for submissions is the 16 January 2008.
