Deadline Extension for the Android Developer Challenge

We'd like to let you know that we are extending the submission deadline for the first Android Developers Challenge to 14 April 2008. Based on the great feedback you've given us, we've made significant updates to the SDK that we'll be releasing in several weeks. In order to give you extra time to take advantage of these forthcoming UI and API enhancements, we've decided to extend the submission deadline. In addition, a fair number of developers have also asked for more time to build and polish their applications.

Of course, you can stay the course and submit your applications using any version of the SDK that you'd like. We're looking forward to seeing some great apps, especially after we've had a chance to incorporate some of your feedback into the Android platform.

Here is the updated time line:

14 April 2008: Deadline to submit applications for judging
5 May 2008: Announcement of the 50 first round winners, who will be eligible for the final round
30 June 2008: Deadline for the 50 winners of the first round to submit for the final round
21 July 2008: Announcement of the grand prize winner and runner-up

Good luck and good coding!
