Nokia Paying $10M For Symbian Software Devs

colordev writes “Yesterday Nokia and AT&T announced a mobile software coding contest worth $10 million in prize money. The move is intended to help Symbian compete with Android and iOS. The day before this announcement, Sony Ericsson said it would not be making any new Symbian devices and is instead focusing on Android. That left Nokia pretty much alone with Symbian, and now it wants to find new coding ‘friends’ to keep the platform alive. Natural selection seems to be slowly eroding Symbian’s future. Is this contest too late?”
