50 More N950 Developer Kits Available Via The Community Device Program

If you’re a open source developer and looking forward to making apps for the MeeGo Harmattan, and had missed out on the first lot, there’s some good news. The community device program has been extended and they not have 50 more N950 devices to give to developers. There are a few conditions though:

“Candidates must have real open source code published and functional via Qt Creator simulator/emulator, Scratchbox, running in similar platforms e.g. Maemo, Symbian, Linux desktop. It can be unstable and far from complete, but we want to see real work done already as a primary way to filter candidates”.

If you think you meet this criteria, then head over to this page and put your name down. There are already a bunch of people who’ve signed up, so you might want to hurry up.

If selected you could be one of the few people in the world to have one, since it’ll never go on sale. Motivation enough?

The N950 Now Available For Developers

The Nokia N9 was just announced at Nokia Connection in Singapore, but missing from the action was the leaked N950, which was supposed to be the developer phone. But if you are a developer looking to get your apps ready for the N9, there is hope, the N950 is still very real and will be made available to developers through selected developer programs, such as Nokia Developer LaunchPad.

More information about developing for the N9 can be found here.

[Update]: Another avenue where you can request a unit of the Nokia N950 is via the MeeGo Device Program.

Candidates must be community developers ready to start working on new or existing open source applications, to be published in apps.meego.com and the Nokia Store. Links to your current projects are relevant! Deadline for applications: end of Tuesday, June 28th.

Good luck!
