Nokia and the Push 900 (hacking project) have just announced the same PUSH concept focusing on the North American individuals or groups keen to hack Nokia’s N900 device. Check out the new USA site for details of what PUSH N900 USA is all about, the prizes ($10,000 for 1st prize) and the ‘Discussion’ page which works just like a standard Wiki – share, collaborate, edit and of course, push information!
The final date for submissions is Noon ET, February 15, 2010
What is PUSH N900 MOD IN THE USA all about?
PUSH is a project run by Nokia that initially called out to the global hacker/modder community to harness the open-source Maemo platform that the Nokia N900 runs on, as well as the device itself, and create hardware hacks/mods for something they’re passionate about. The initial PUSH N900 project saw a host of awesome entries from all around the globe, from the Nokia N900 performing light graffiti, kite aerial photography or even real-time scoring of skateboarding tricks amongst your network of fellow skaters.
Here are a few videos of previous projects and some currently in progress. Also, you can follow Push N900 on Twitter for latest updates.
