The folks at Vodafone are obviously keen to increase the stature of their Vodafone 360 service. After offering a €1 million prize fund in its ‘Vodafone App Star’ competition, the network is now inviting potential developers to showcase their talents at this month’s Vodafone 360 Developer Conference at Mobile World Congress. Any developer who registers at the show will receive a free pass for the four day event, but it’s once inside that the real rewards are earned.
Any new apps will be auditioned at the show, with further cash prizes including €1000, a Vodafone 360 Samsung H1 along with a host of other smartphones. In addition they will automatically be entered into the Vodafone App Star competition, which offers the chance to win up to €100,000. Vodafone 360 is centered on your social networks, but also offers a variety of downloadable apps, with 7,000 already available since being launched three months ago. By March Vodafone hopes to have shipped over two million Vodafone 360 devices.
