2C2P Makes to the Finals of the Nokia’s 2009 Calling All Innovators

The Forum Nokia Developer Community (FNDC) has just announced the list of finalists in its 2009 “Calling All Innovators” contest.

Singapore company 2C2P was chosen amongst the list of more than 1,700 submissions received from developers in 85 countries who have responded to Nokia’s challenge of creating new mobile applications, solutions and services that enhance the use of Nokia mobile devices in real-world scenarios.

2C2P’s Mobile Credit Card Terminal entry has made it to the Top 3 in the “Emerging Markets and Mobile Necessities” category. The Mobile Credit Card Terminal gives business owners the ability to charge a credit or debit card and to manage transactions securely and smoothly from Nokia S60 devices without the need for additional equipment. The application uses a standard Card Not Present message format, bypassing the need for a cardholder signature.

“We are honoured to have been the only company from Singapore to be a finalist in this year’s award. This is an amazing opportunity for 2C2P to showcase our competencies in the mobile and e-commerce payment space to an international audience,” says Aung Kyaw Moe, CEO of 2C2P Pte Ltd.

Prizes for the “Calling All Innovators” contest include a cash award, the opportunity to demo the winning application at Nokia World in Stuttgart, Germany, in September 2009, and a spotlight placement featuring the winning application on Nokia’s newly announced Ovi Store where consumers can find the best mobile applications and content for their Nokia devices.
