Cool... I've tried to get this using qemu, but it didn't work, but maybe 
it's due to the emulator itself, btw any news about the accelerometers 
The iPhone-style rotation would be really cool and also useful (maybe it 
could allow to use WITH FINGERS a qwerty keyboard instead of the 
standard-phone-copy that is available now!).
I trust in this development...!
