BlackBerry Partners Fund announce more finalists in Developer Challenge

The BlackBerry Partners Fund have announced the next four finalists in the 2009 BlackBerry Developer Challenge.

The next four finalists are:

  • David by Turner Technologies
  • Sid Meier’s Pirates by Concrete Software Inc
  • CBS News by Handmark
  • Market Simplified by Market Simplified Inc.

This brings the total finalists to 8. The previous four finalists were:

  • Fierce Towers by Nickel Buddy
  • Astraware Solitare by Handmark
  • Expense Manager by Total Wireless Solutions
  • Vision for YouTube by Metova

So far, of the 8 finalists, 3 are games. This is interesting considering games make up a small percentage of total BlackBerry content sales. Finalists were selected by a panel of judges based on the following criteria: compelling product or service; clearly defined value proposition, and; technical execution. Personally, I would like to see more utilities in the finalists. These apps are constantly improving the functionality of the device and need more recognition.

My next four choices are:

  • gwabbit
  • vPost (their latest version includes screenshot functionality and a scribble feature)
  • LaterDude Pro
  • Poynt (with their new features, are they eligible to reapply?)

Who would you nominate for the Developer Challenge?
