SymbianOS_licensees_470 International Smartphone market leader, Symbian, is initiating a competition in which university students write on the future of Smartphones.

If you are currently enrolled at an accredited university, are interested in mobile technology and have a talent for writing about the same, then this could be a way for you to win 1000 UK as well as to get your work published by Symbian. Not a bad deal.

The details are reposted below, along with the link to the Symbian site for specific questions and complete rules.

If any of you win, MobilitySite will expect it’s cut…or at least some Nokia swag.
