Re: iPhone 4

Very interesting developments from Apple.

The increase in screen rez is nice, but not so radically superior to the N900 that it makes a big deal. You still can't do pressure-sensitive work like...

Re: Multiple Cameras

How are you attempting this, noobmonkey?

Are you just creating/closing pipelines alternately, and overlaying the incoming frames as fast as you can? In C, of course ;)

That would seem to be the...

Re: JAVA on the N900 is possible!
