I'm curious to know how appealing the eDGe is for developers. I see lots of potential for overclocking, etc. So what do you think?

I will definitely be writing stuff for the Edge. Just waiting to get mine to start doing stuff.

Same here.

I am not as interested in overclocking as fully utilizing the dual screen model for something other than just e-book reading. I can't wait for the SDK but that will probably be available by the end of the year. I bet I can get in plenty of development just writing for the LCD side.

yeah, what's the deal with dialing the chip speed down (where did I read that, again?)? Definitely worthy to pursue getting THAT speed back, alone (I'm guessing it had something to do with battery life?)

I can't WAIT to see what kinds of goodies you smart developers whip up for us eDGerS (I just coined that, it's official!)...I'm gonna *TRY* to dabble in writing some things, but I doubt anything will be earth-shattering.

Exactly what I'm saying. If a company is going to utilize a processor rated for 1.3Ghz why do they feel need to dial it back nearly 50% to 800Mhz!!! I have a Motorloa Droid OC'd from 550Mhz to 1.1Ghz, so the possibilities are endless.

Heck, why not! I will try the over-clocking as well and see how that goes. Over-clocking can, however, significantly reduce the battery running time. I suggest use over-clocking only if you think you are going to get something out of it. I usually only play with over-clocking with PCs and servers that are permanently connected to AC power. Over-clocking something that runs on batteries is not very useful in most cases.
