Uplinq 2012 is just around the corner (June 27 & 28 in San Diego, California), and it’s a great opportunity to pitch us your last-minute SmartWatch app ideas for the SmartWatch Developer Campaign. In addition, we’ve got a great line up of developer activities for you during the event. Schedule a private, one-on-one meeting with us through the Uplinq Market Match program. Join the Mobile CodeFest and Hackathon happening on June 26 to get exclusive, hands-on programming and testing with recently announced Sony Mobile smartphones. And come stop by our booth (#218) to demo our latest products.
Uplinq is one of the best conferences for mobile developers, offering technical education and vital business connections across multiple leading platforms, including Android and HTML5. Sony Mobile will be part of Uplinq, and you are more than welcome to meet and join us in a number of different activities. First and foremost, you will have a last chance of getting a free SmartWatch, if you pitch a solid app idea to us. You can also join us in the Uplinq Market Match program and the Mobile CodeFest and Hackathon.
Check out our latest portfolio and pitch your SmartWatch app ideas
You will find Sony Mobile in booth #218, where you can check out the latest Xperia™ smartphones and mobile accessories. You can also meet with Sony Mobile reps from the Developer World team, business development and marketing, to ask technical questions or discuss potential partnership activities. It will also be the final opportunity to pitch your SmartWatch app ideas to us for the SmartWatch developer campaign, and to take a home a device of your own. You can fill out this form and give it to us in person at Uplinq on June 27, and come back to the booth on June 28 to see if you qualify for a free SmartWatch device.
