We are one week into Project CSX and thanks to all of you, we've received hundreds of submissions for the next great mobile device. Keep them coming. We love hearing about your ideas. Submit your idea (make sure you are logged into Z-Community first), or just browse the latest ideas and help vote.
Please remember the spirit of this competition. It's a chance for your voice to be heard, for your vision to be realized and for the world to recognize that the best ideas can come from anyone. All it takes is an innovative spirit. ZTE will build your idea and bring it to fruition if the world agrees with you and votes your idea to the top.
That being said, there's a few things that we've learned in the first week that can be shared with you. Well over half of the entries so far have been ideas for smartphones. Furthermore, many of the ideas are specifications for smartphones for next year's chip, and maybe an upgraded sensor or two. If that's what everyone wants ZTE to build, we'll build it. CSX is your project. But, we'd like to challenge all of you to get more creative. This is your opportunity to think about what's next for mobile - in the home, in the car, at work or anywhere.
It doesn't have to be a phone. In fact, we'd prefer that we have something unique and innovative at the end of this project and not something that we'd likely be working on anyway. So grab a beer, or a glass of wine, sit down and brainstorm (that's how I do it... maybe it will work for you too). You have until August 31 to get your ideas submitted for this phase of Project CSX. Good luck!
