Yea, I'm excited too.  I was thinking it would be possible to use the
accelerometer + GPS to make the phone act like a "window" into the game
world.  Where you can look around in 3d.

There was a group of people in some major American city a year or so ago

that played a city-wide game of PacMan using GPS-enabled phones... 
teammates would lead the 'ghost' characters to where the PacMan 
character was, and so on. Got a fair bit of press.

I'm excited at what the Freerunner will be capable of in this regard, as

it would be FAR easier to write/play GPS games with an open phone.
