Google Chooses 50 Android Apps

Fierce Wireless has the list of applications that won the first round of Google’s Android Developer Challenge, a contest set up to find the best Android applications. Sure, there might not be any Android-capable handsets on the market yet, but the developers might as well get their apps ready.

The top 50 apps, which will all be supported by Android, were selected from some 1,800 submissions, and the winning developers will each get $25,000. Round two, which will narrow the field to 20 applications, will end in late July. The top 10 contenders will each get $275,000, with the next 10 each winning $100,000.
