Does anyone know of any existing open-source dashboard apps for embedded devices, especially anything using Qt?
Well as this demonstrates you just need to write a Linux-program.
(The Kindle uses Linux as its base OS so you write a linux program that uses the display (which might be shown in the qindle source) and you have yourself a new 'something')
