When the 2.1 update comes out I hope to use my backflip with a bluetooth OBDII scanner (no scanner apps for 1.6 :()

It would be great if I could use a small 7" or so LCD monitor as a display. Can't find anything news on software though. I know you can get the displays that use usb for video, so I figure just a matter of time until I can use one with the phone. Definiately an app I would pay for :)

Any news on this topic? Search came up empty handed so this is my first post!

LOL. You want to add another 7 inch screen to a smartphone? I hope you weren't worried about battery life.

For a theoretical accessory that I'd like to use, on a future update of the OS, with software that isn't developed yet, yes battery life is actually my primary concern. Second only to zombies.

P.S. I'd be looking for a display with external power.

If its a device that uses external power, it shouldnt take up much more battery than headphones or just playing a video from your SD card.

That would be interesting though, Haven't heard of anything unfortunately.

bluetooth video would be pretty sweet. Next logical step after stereo bluetooth :):blur:
