Netbooks' mobility and smaller screen sizes demand applications that are optimized for a mobile, on-the-go audience. So Intel® set up the Million Dollar Development Fund to help developers respond to this challenge.
The goal of the Intel® Atom™ Developer Program Million Dollar Development Fund is to help accelerate innovation in software applications for Intel Atom processor-based products, starting with netbooks, and eventually supporting smartphones, consumer electronics and more devices.
The fund will be available to individual and student developers, as well as small, medium and large software companies. Along with other program elements such as powerful tools, active online communities, and training events, this fund is designed to support development of groundbreaking netbook applications.
