If you want to be a part of the Windows Phone 7 developer contest, you’ve got two weeks left. As a reminder, the first 100 submissions will get an XDA T-Shirt. Participants will also have a chance at winning a new Windows Phone 7 device plus an Amazon gift card. Winners will become a Windows Phone Developer Hero; your bio and “appography” will be featured on the WP7 Developer Program home page.
The contest is pretty simple: make and submit a unique WP7 app. If you do that, you will get a free XDA T-Shirt*. There are TWO grand prizes for the best applications. Each prize includes:
- A brand new Samsung Focus
- A $250 gift card to Amazon
- A feature on the Windows Phone Developer Heroes site
Here’s how to enter:
Download the Windows Phone SDK and create an amazing app. The only rules are that the app must conform to Microsoft’s certification requirements and must be your own work. To submit your app:
XDA admins will nominate five finalists from all submissions. TWO of these will win a Grand Prize. One winner will be chosen by a popular vote by XDA members, and the other will be chosen by XDA admins.

One such Hero is Johnny Simmons, a 13-year-old that has 15 apps in the Windows Phone 7 Marketplace. One of his apps, 7 Tab Browser, lets you view two web pages side-by-side, and also have up to 7 tabs open at once.
We will be accepting submissions starting today and ending on June 30th. Finalists for the prizes will be announced soon after.
