Jason Chen over at the official Android Developers Blog has posted a list of 46 of the 50 first round winners of the Android Developers Challenge. Why 46, you ask? Well, 4 of the winners wanted to continue their work in secret. I suppose they are hoping to get the jump on the market when the devices start shipping for real later this year.
Wouldn’t it be amusing, though, if each of the 4 were working on basically the same secret idea?
Anyway….here is the list of 46 of the 50 winners from the first round of the ADC. Each of these folks won US$25,000 as a prize. Not too shabby.
