Winners of Google's Android Developer Challenge

Google announced the 50 winning applications for its Android Developer Challenge. The first round ended with 50 applications, earning their developers $25,000 each. Of the 50, only 46 chose to have their names published, while the remaining four plan to toil away in secrecy. Next up: Round 2, which ends in late July. Twenty of these 50 will get more cash prizes: 10 get $150,000 and 10 get $275,000.
