Samsung is holding a contest dubbed Smart App Challenge to promote application development for both the Galaxy Tab and the Galaxy Note line. There will be 80 winners – 60 Samsung Apps Super Apps and 20 apps which feature creative ways to use the S-Pen stylus for the Galaxy Note. The 60 Samsung Apps Super Apps will be broken up into top 30 games and top 30 non-games. They will be chosen by users by the number of downloads. The 20 S-Pen apps will be chosen by a panel. The cash prizes for both range from $30,000 to $200,000 USD. On top of the cash prize, Samsung potentially could advertise the winning applications on TV and other media to promote their tablets.
