Good find. I guess i should have just checked wikipedia instead of
googling would have gotten me much better information.

I will however still bet $50 (first taker actually gets payout) that
there will be a way to play  video on the phone. I'm betting xvid or
Theora however i'm not ruling out H.264 as of yet. Don't get me wrong
cpu will be pegged above 90 but with some optomizations and dedication
it'll happen. Infact i'm curious to get gstreamer up and try the
Fluendo codecs as they have run better than all i've found except
libmad which is just amazing (IMO obviously).  But hey if i'm wrong
i'm wrong and someone gets 50 american dollars.
