I haven't seen the camera mentioned much, is that something nearly impossible to get working? I don't know much about software, did some searches but couldn't find much of a discussion on the topic and I am curious. Thanks.
This really is the most important part for people? I think the camera takes horrible pictures, but I guess that's just me lol.

There are some devs working on it, the userland stuff is done... but the kernel piece, the piece where Linux actually understands how to talk to the camera itself - that's the hard part, and the slow goings part.

Hopefully it will get some more attention soon, but there's still a lot of other things that need to be ironed out... Power management is #1 in my mind, and that is where a lot of work is being done currently. Full USB support seems around the corner as well.

I just tried this test on TP2, try taking pictures without the backcover or remove the small plastic lens which is in front of it.
What i have found is that the crappy plastic which is in front of the camera get all dusty and scratcy and this causes the pictures to come really dull....i did a before and after with and without the plastic and the difference is day and night

Valid points, but assuming you have a nice camera... no need. I don't, but I bought my gf one so I can use it whenever

cant go wrong with a better camera....i dont think camera is that important right now for this port....for me power managment and 3.5 mm headphone jack are the most important ....

on a side note...where can i start reading or trying if i want to jump into android/linux development?

I agree, the camera in the TP2 leaves a lot to be desired and if and when the developers get around to fixing it is fine with me. I'm more concerned w/ call stability, which is dramatically improved, MMS, battery life and USB, with those, IMO, I would run this full time and not look back.

Agreed.

Well, if you know git - here's the repo. Build environment - you'll need one of those too. That's a pretty good guide by stinebd.

Has it happened to any of you with the new build that the phone would just restart randomly...it happens to me atleast 2-3 times in a day.
