I've got my sort-of, kind-of working rotary dialer (with source) here:

It's pretty ugly and the physics are a little buggy, but it's a start.  I will set it up on when I get a chance.

I haven't really done my due diligence in researching the matter, but has anyone made Python bindings to access the system resources yet?  Or, perhaps it is as simple as talking over DBUS?  For the moment, I am controlling the vibrator by writing to the LED device, though I suspect that is not the proper way to go about it.

I love retro stuff.

Michael and I were talking about sampleapps for beginners and I thought it would be cool to

to do a “hello world” dialer.get it?  I know kinda dorky.

Doing a remix of the old rotary dialer asa “hello world” app  on the neo would be a neat hack.

Neo would approve.

I am positive you shouldhave to turn the dialer manually for most user friendliness :D
While hilarious this could become a killer feature to make a phone for thetechnologically challenged.
