XDA Tablet Z Development Competition Results Are In

Confucius say, “All good things are difficult to achieve…” How’s that for beginning the announcement of a Grand Prize winner for the XDA Tablet Z Development Competition? It would be completely accurate, given the nature of the competition. We first accepted entrants into the competition where they told us how they would use the Sony Xperia Tablet Z and its many features in a new development project, with 10 being chosen from that list. Then, we gave them a Tablet Z to begin working on their project, with voting by the community to begin at the end of July looking for two winners (a community-voted winner and an XDA picked winner). Now, we’re pleased to announce the following winners who will each receive a Sony NEX-6 camera, courtesy of Sony.

So without further ado, we give you:

Community Winner

mamenyakaUbuntu Touch

 

XDA Winner

Apache14 – Open Source IR Blaster + Robots

 

Congratulations to each of these winners. We look forward to seeing bigger and greater things out of both of them, especially given they have some new hardware to work with.
