Samsung announced S-Pen app contest to spur Galaxy Note development

A platform is only as good as the software available for it - just ask your nearest bitter WebOS fan. And while Samsung's Galaxy Note (and soon it's big brother the Galaxy Note 10.1) have been met with mostly positive buzz, there's still only a few apps in the Android Market that take advantage of its unique S-Pen stylus and active digitizer. Samsung hopes to change that, encouraging developers to create new apps for the S-Pen with the Galaxy Note S Pen Challenge. Devs, listen up: this could be worth your while to the tune of $100,000.

Sony and their popular Playstation Suite is currently only available for a few Sony devices, which makes total sense. When first announced Sony did mention they planned to eventually bring it to other devices in the near future.

Ice Cream Sandwich SDK ROMs already in the works

Ideally, ROM developers wait for the open-source, AOSP version of the latest Android release before building a new ROM. But there is something of a work-around: industrious programmers can take pieces of the SDK and cobble together a working phone or tablet ROM. A good example is the various community-authored versions of Honeycomb based on its Software Development Kit. Now preliminary versions of Ice Cream Sandwich based on the recently-released SDK are already making their way onto the Nexus S.

Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich SDK is available today

Consumers might not be getting their hands on the new Samsung Galaxy Nexus until November, but developers can prepare for the new Ice Cream Sandwich right now.

For non-developers, this means that as soon as you get a Galaxy Nexus or another Ice Cream Sandwich phone, apps that take advantage of the new OS features should be available.
