Nokia handsets ready for app overhaul to appeal to mobile recyclers?

24 September 2010 — 12:00 PM

The Nokia N8 is due for release imminently

Devices such as the Nokia N8, E7 and C7 could soon become significantly more attractive to those who recycle a mobile phone and are on the lookout for a replacement.

That is because the Finnish company, along with mobile firm AT&T, has announced it is devoting $10 million (£6.37 million) to finding new apps.

The sum will be dished out to developers across North America who provide interesting, informative and entertaining tools for the latest mobiles.

Nokia and AT&T have launched a programme entitled Calling All Innovators in a bid to attract the best app creators in the continent.

Purnima Kochikar, vice-president of the Nokia Forum, says: "Developers have the tools, the support from AT&T and the marketing power of Nokia to get visibility for their apps."

The long-awaited Nokia N8 - featuring a 12-megapixel camera and the latest video recording technology - is due for release imminently, while the brand has also recently announced it is to launch three new smartphones.
