Calling all innovators
An interesting coincidence in time: Forum Nokia is Calling All Innovators while Maemo looks for community projects for the prime time. If you are cooking something so great that people would like to carry always with them, this call is for you.
As for Maemo, we want to support community initiatives trying to develop impressive products. Free software developers are relatively good at coding amazing features, but their work many times don’t reach real users’ amazement due to lack of completeness, stability, performance, polished user experience, promotion… Community focus and corporate support can help in the last mile.
Maemo 5 comes with many new features and potential use cases worth exploring: HSPA support, high definition camera support, OMAP3 support, OpenGL ES and more. Squeeze them! Getting in the loop is a easy as editing a wiki page.
About the Calling All Innovators contest, Forum Nokia is actually trying to address (among other things) something that got me thinking years ago: what piece of software would change the life of those really needing a change? Not another media player, you bet. We all could do much better thinking beyond the usual use cases around (our relatively) comfortable lives.
Both calls are fully compatible. In case of doubt apply to both!
