I just received this E-mail, sounds like a great opportunity for anyone who is up for a little bit of challenge, I would definitely give it a go if I wasn't dead busy at the moment....

here it goes:

Developing mobile applications is very exciting. From developing the concept, building out wireframes, all the way to launch, seeing your creation come to life is very gratifying as a developer. Sprint recognizes this gratification, and wants to continue that feeling by inviting you and your blog audience to a unique app development contest.

Sprint is leading the way with 4G speed, and wants to place some Android app developers in the lime light to showcase what they can do when 4G is thrown into the mix. Sprint, along with partners Wired, Reddit and Ars Technica have created the Sprint 4G App Challenge, a contest to develop 4G mobile applications to demonstrate the benefits and features of a 4G application.
