Google after iPhone w/ $10M Set Aside for Developers?

Can Google get developers to focus on Android apps over iPhone apps? Good question.

Google is setting aside $10M in prize money for the developers who create the best application. 50 developers (companies) will get $25,000. Some get more. What does Google want to see? They tell us:

Bribery? Incentive? One thing for sure, Google delivered their SDK first. However, Apple has a real device with more than 1M real users. Plus, many have already developed their web-based apps (BTW, I still use iPhoneMiles, but on my BlackBerry). It’ll be interesting.

Google has created an Android video channel on YouTube.
