Nokia kicks off second Push N900 contest with red, white, blue flavor

You may recall that Nokia's first Push contest resulted in an absolutely delightful mashup of an N900 and a Speak 'n Spell (although we always hate to see a vintage Speak 'n Spell bite the dust). Problem is, Americans weren't really represented among the finalists, so the company has decided to do a second round with a distinctly American flair -- and this time, there's cold, hard cash involved. Push N900 Mod in the USA (it's a mouthful, we know) runs through February 15, during which interested parties need to get their submissions for creative N900 uses and hacks to Nokia; finalists will be chosen and given support to turn their ideas into reality. Afterward, modders will be flown out to CTIA in March with their finished products to demonstrate their doohickeys before a board of judges, and -- here's the good part -- winners will receive $10,000, $5,000, and $3,000, respectively. The N900 was pretty much born to be hacked, so let's see some wild ideas, alright?
