I think some people would welcome the feature of autorotation by just turning the eDGe. enTourage said they were almost there. I'm sure someone in the community will be able to finish off or come up with their own reliable way to do it. After all enTourage had a deadline for hardware release and this was probably seen as low priority initially and just hasn't been revisited. As I've said before, the real plus of all this is that the hardware IS there. The software will catch up eventually now the open source community is available.

Way to go robot ! The benefit of open source community effort exemplified right there. I'm sure this is something enTourage can squeeze in to the next release (not wishing to encourage feature-creep). I'm sure a drastic increase in the number of supported apps is a major marketing feature for what seems like minimal effort.

A gauntlet, which I'm sure will be picked up by somebody. It's an important piece of hardware in this day and age (people almost expect one nowadays) and to just have it sitting there in the eDGe unused seems a great shame.
