Google’s contest to reward developers who are building software for the upcoming Google phone have been winnowed down to 10 finalists (from 1,788 applications submitted earlier this year). Winners get $275,000 each.
There’s a shopping comparison app, several location-based apps, plus one to edit photos, another to share music and another that offers a challenging workout. Check out the finalists at Google’s Android Developer Gallery.
This continues to add to the ongoing excitement of the up-and-coming Google phone, which is rumored to launch this fall first from T-Mobile. Yesterday, as mentioned in my post, “Psst: T-Mobile’s 3G half the price of AT&T’s iPhone plan,” Google announced Android would get its own store, just like the Apple Apps store.
