No I didn't, but it's very interesting since I didn't expect Nokia to
care much about openness. Or is it because of the slow bus speeds?
With ATI releasing the specs for all newer graphics adapters, would
there be a chance to get an Imageon chip on board. Or something from
another vendor. Or an FPGA like I said, this would be the "holy grail of
openness" and the 3D core could be developed and provided with updates
for every model.
3D acceleration on the BeagleBoard, AFAIK this board is full of (very
stupid *gg) bugs and somebody has to find a 3D accelerator as well to
plug it in ;)
