With the SONY Dash and Free Blackberry playbook developer contests dying down, we have been looking at new competitions to participate in. Participating in developer competitions is a great way to keep yourself or your small business developers motivated since there are usually gret opportunities to will cash or prizes with very little competition. We recently recieved our free Blackberry Playbook in the mail from RIM’s competition and also recieved a free Logitech Google TV device during Google’s product offering competition to small businesses. Stay tuned for our article on the rewards and challenges of participating in RIM’s competiton soon.
