.”… I hope you enjoyed seeing some of the applications we’ve built already but the best applications are not here yet. That’s because they’re going to be written by you and many other developers just like you. We’d like to reward these developers and to recognize them as much as possible so we’ve set aside $10 million which we’re going to give away to the people who develop the best applications using Android. We’re looking forward seeing some really great aps; ones which are innovative, make use of the great functionality available in Android and on mobile phones, and things that are really original that haven’t seen before. I look forward to seeing all of your work.” Sergey Brin
