Nokia N8 Make My App competition

To help promote the N* (and provide content for the Ovi Store) Nokia are running a 'Make My App' competition to win a trip to London (Nokia World) and a Nokia N8. Nokia are looking for ideas to turn into apps.

The video introduces the competition and interviews two of the judges, Tim Kring (Producer of TV series Heroes) and Matt Osman (London editor of the online magazine le cool), to find out what sort of ideas they think might win.

Nokia N8 sneak peek

In this final  video Max Vlassenko, hand freestyler (great job title), gets hands on with the Nokia N8. It's a good opportunity to take a closer look at design, a slim line monoblock touch form factor wrapped in metal and glass, and the hand dexterity is OK too.
