Nokia holds crowdsourcing contest for N9 UI

Nokia is holding a contest, asking interested parties to come up with ways to improve their flagship N9 smartphone. There are a total of 15 Nokia N9s earmarked as prizes, and users can submit their ideas on a dedicated website. The crowd-sourcing approach is expected to come up with an innovative and intuitive interface that the design team likely wouldn't stumble upon, one of the judges, Peter Skillman, VP of Services & MeeGo Design, believed.

The two other judges of the Nokia Ideas Project include the company's VP of Smart Devices UX Design Nikki Barton as well as Anton Fahlgren, its Senior Design Manager. The contest is open until November 15, and has thus far generated 1,210 ideas.

While 10 N9s will be given away for the top 10 ideas when the contest closes, there are five more for grabs, however, as the team will give one out every week until the contest closes. Those with the top idea judged by the jury out of 15 selected by the crowd will get an N9 as well.
