Digging up old thread, now that we kind of know what the JBC has in store for us.
I don't know every of the JBC's feats and apps, or what it still has in the making, but here's some feats I'd still like to see:


- CBR/CBZ reader (comic book,basically a reader that opens zipped or rarred jpegs)
- Notepad with hadwrite recognition (Handwrite recognition is not a must,but having a notepad is awesome!)
- Paint (like MS paint) but for pen input; basically a notepad with multi (256 or 8-bit) colors.
- PDF landscape reading (and 2 page reading for small papersize in landscape mode)
- PDF auto zoom text + img to screen size (get rid of borders with zoom)
- Image Browser (View images by folder, or uncompressed comic book files within one folder)
- Basic web browser We are waiting for Oh-Per-A!
- Advanced graphical calculator (with graphs, scales, and advanced formula's; get rid of your Casio's)
- Simple non-time based games like card games (eg: patience), sudoku, Mahjong, minesweeper,chess, dams, monopoly, a simple pawn game based on dies doing random numbers, Yahtzee, Starquest-like game, text based games, etc...
- An internal dictionary (words + meaning)
- Calendar / Agenda
- A Basic File browser with commands to 'open'/'copy'/'move' and 'delete' a file
- Some nice scientific stuff, like having a 'Periodic table', where you could click on a metal or material, and see it's properties (although I'm quite sure it's pretty easy to make in PDF form)
- Better in-document Hyperlink support (to go from TOC to chapters, or from text to footnote, or from one page to another by tapping on the link,without opening a menu).
- Unit Convertor (Weight/Size/temperature/surface area/pressure...) from metric to others and reverse; financial convertor (eg: Dollars to Euro or Yuan or others (update conversion factor via internet,or manually)),

PS:Anyone knows if you can run a DOS shell from the device somehow?
