Last year, N9s were given out as prizes to the winning app developers.
There was some uncertainty where we would source those this year and so now
we have a source.  I don't know that there is anything special about when
the devices are given out, but yes the summer is a prime period for
activity.  It's been noted that people don't always use the device for the
community as promised and so the competition has the advantage that it
really does push apps.  Also, I wonder if there are more devices available
than we need for the competition so we can simply reserve some devices for
the competition.

I agree with open source requirement, actually I had assumed it would be
one of council's criteria for selecting anyway.
