Hi All,

Just an FYI: It looks like the Sony QX10/QX100 camera modules could theoretically be used with the Jolla device (with some effort)

http://www.dpreview.com/news/2013/09...or-smartphones

There is an API available here which allows access to the remote functions of the camera modules.

Not sure if this interests anybody but thought I would post in case people were wondering about camera other-half options?

Presumably, there would need to be an app created (the android app may not work).

Also, on the hardware side the QX10/QX100 both have a mount which looks like it could plug-in to a specially created back half (presumably 3D printing is an option there).

This could be an interesting project for someone familiar with Qt development etc.



My guess is the Jolla device will be around 68mm in width (guess based on other devices with similar screen), and these modules are 63mm so they should 'fit' the back of the Jolla.

Personally I would have preferred a module with a larger sensor and smaller prime lens but these modules are probably designed for a more mainstream audience who think optical zoom is important.

so that means Jolla or others cannot license Pureview from Nokia?

camera other half and battery other half are the most important.

Wrong!

Hardware keyboard is the most important other half!

Can't agree more. Lots of options for camera and camera phones on the market, but not a single one with hardware keyboard.

Physical keyboard vs Swype = Swype win !!!

Camera with a good zoom is very important.

Qx10/100 is a great idea !

For you, maybe.

I still prefer to see the screen while typing.

Not really. At least, not for anything real. No, your facebook/twitter/whatsapp one-liners are not "something real". Next...

Seriously though, I don't see any reasons why HWKB and camera couldn't share same module - as long as we would really know anything about interface for OH. 'Till that, all this is a speculation gibberish.
