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.
