"In the first season of the campaign, which is a reality television show, we have got some 38,000 app ideas. It is seven times more than our expectation. We have shown top 2,000 ideas to our developers and now 1,200 ideas are converted into apps, which are now live. Around 300 more will be live by February," P. Balaji, managing director, Nokia India said.

As expected, the company is looking to match (if not more) the success it garnered last year with the first edition of the campaign. Last year, while the company was expecting a maximum of 5,000 entries, Nokia, by the end of the contest, had to take help of Ernst Young to audit the massive 38,000 ideas. Now with a year gone, 1200 of these ideas have become apps with 300 more still cooking to offer something unique.
