Competition Reg Hardware has teamed up with Research in Motion (RIM) for a spiffy competition called the BlackBerry Super App-rentice.

The premise is simple. We want you to sketch out an idea for a BlackBerry Super App.

Five entrants will win a BlackBerry Torch 9800 smartphone. And you may even see your idea turned into an app.

What are the judges looking for?

Blackberry Torch 9800

You are unlikely to make the cut if you enter a dull me-too idea. We're looking for smart thinking! Keep it brief and to the point. So what is a Super App?

Here's some blurb, culled from BlackBerry's Super Apps website for developers

Super Apps draw on the unique power of the BlackBerry platform and can include one or more of the following features:

  • The always-on experience
  • Tight integration with native apps
  • Proactive and notification driven - draws on BlackBerry's push capabilities
  • Highly contextualized - think location! location! location!
  • Social and connected
  • Designed for battery efficiency

If you want to see how this pans out in practice, check out a great - and free - Super App, called Poynt for BlackBerry. this local search engine offers seamless integration with with various BlackBerry functions and, with the BlackBerry Torch, integrated search for OS6.

This way for the BlackBerry Super App-rentice competition.
