i had one of these back in my punto (hides away) when i had it, looks spot on cant wait to see it in flesh! wireless is expensive i tried it but cost a bloddy fortune when the mobile phone bill comes in. Oh i forgot to mention have a look at my final year project at kingston if you can its called vision alarm. basically i create an alarm system that was connected to a computer which took digital pictures and sent them to your phone via mms online. thats just a brief description of what it done.

That is ghetto. Where do you get all the info to build summin like that and how much has/will it cost you? Will you be able to run any windows application that you want? Also could you have a keyboard if you wanted or a game controller? cause if so i should totally run old school console emulators on it. I have about 200+ old SNES games and Mega Drive ones too.

Man that's a cool idea.

If I'm ever rich I'll do this but have it an insane games machine too haha

Also if you like drum n bass arena, download or buy Jungle Rewind (u can get it on play.com I think) its mixed better I find :)
