Definitely a great application - and not just for openmoko.
Check on my blog www.collins.net.pr/blog for Microsoft Photosynth as an

I also think any photograph application should be storing photos on an
internet based server along with the co-ordinates and then allow
chronological viewing...as well as other references.
