Feedback on Qi,
boot is faster - when it works :)
If I hold the button on until the screen backlight comes on, it will
sometimes boot (~1 out of 3) - otherwise the screen gives a brief flash
and shuts down - sometimes while still holding the powerbutton in.
Needs a bootsplash or something on the screen so you can see its started
up - the backlight cant be seen in sunlight for instance. I realise it
probably doesnt have one for speed, so maybe echo some dots or anything
to show somethings happened/happening
Does Qi have the same flat-battery recovery abilities as the latest
