Are you ready for Windows Phone 7 later this year but need an app for it while you are not a developer at all? Tell Microsoft and win! Microsoft is holding a contest where you can pitch Microsoft of the dream app you are waiting for. And if it gets the votes, Microsoft will build your app and make it available on Marketplace as a free download for Windows Phone 7 shortly after its "Holiday 2010" launch. All you have to do is grabbing your camcorder, camera phone of flexing your writing skills and get creative. Send your ideas to Microsoft and win US$ 5,000 - a new Windows Phone 7 smartphone and the glory of having your app in the Marketplace without being a developer!
Your entry should include a video no more than 90 seconds in length or a written submission of no more than 1000 words. All Submissions must be created by the contestant and must be original work of authorship of the Contestant, and not previously published. Submissions should describe the functionality of the mobile application the entrant would like Microsoft to develop for free download on Windows Phone Marketplace for Windows Phone 7. No word yet if this contest is open to U.S. Americans only or also open to the rest of the world. Anyway, for further information, head over to Microsoft's Windows Phone 7 site
