2C2P Only Singapore Finalist in Nokia Competition
August 22, 2009 by SGE
Singapore company 2C2P has just been selected as a Top 3 finalist from amongst 1,700 submissions in 85 countries in the Nokia Calling All Innovators competition. The challenge was to create new mobile applications, solutions and services for use on Nokia devices in these categories: Internet Innovation, Flash, Emerging Markets and Mobile Necessities, and Apps on Maps.
Not only was 2C2P’s Mobile Credit Card Terminal the only Singapore finalist, it was also selected as top 3 in two categories: Emerging Markets and Mobile Necessities. A demo of all the finalists can be viewed here.
2C2P’s Mobile Credit Card Terminal gives business owners the ability to charge a credit or debit card and to manage transactions securely and smoothly from Nokia S60 devices without the need for additional equipment. The application uses a standard Card Not Present message format, bypassing the need for a cardholder signature.
If 2C2P does win the competition, they will get a cash award (Updated: 2C2P will get at least 10k in cash no matter) and the opportunity to demo at Nokia World in Stuttgart, Germany come September 2009. They will also be highlighted on the newly announced Ovi Store so that the winning apps will have more visibility.
