Super apps. We hear the term being used more and more these days when describing BlackBerry applications and while many out there have made up their own definition of what one may be, Research In Motion are the people to explain it best. As seen in the above video from WES 2010, super apps can be defined as applications which make use of all the BlackBerry resources available. From usage of notification pop ups, context menu integration right down to being able to access any application from within anywhere on the device. Deep integration across the whole device.

2010 BlackBerry Developer Super Apps Challenge: This year the BlackBerry Partners Fund is looking for anyone who is building super apps. Be it an application which you feel is already a super app or a new app you are currently working on. They want to see it. The challenge is set. The stakes are over $1.5 Million worth of prizes and includes developer services from leading industry partners, featured placements on BlackBerry App World, marketing programs from Research In Motion and much more. So what are you waiting for? If you are a BlackBerry developer who is delivering super apps, you'll want to take on the BlackBerry Developer Fund's 2010 Super Apps Developer Challenge. The full list of contest prizes, eligibility and requirements are available on the BlackBerry Partners Fund website, just click the link.

I guess I should have stayed in school. But it will be interesting to see what can come out of this challenge as RIM really is a step ahead of others with push. Allowing 8kb of data to be sent by developers instead of just a keeping a notification open is going to make a big difference.

I might enter the contest if my Google Buzz application is well along by the deadline. But I pretty sure it will be a very good group of competitors.
