A few Nokia smartphone ideas and questions Answered

Is there any free way to use a phone as a bluetooth mouse or keyboard? Perhaps VNC? I saw a comment somewhere with the idea of using the phone like an optical mouse. Anything that can do that? Also is there a way to get maps that use cell towers to track your position without using the internet to load the map? (I'm on prepaid and wap isn't cheap) Know of any must have apps for a Nokia N72? Thanks in advance

Well, i suggest using a VNC for the mouse controlling ideas, much easier than any of the camera based ideas. On the iphone 2.0 platform you can get several 'mouse' applications, some use the touch screen as a trackpad, others used the accelerometer as a in the air gyro mouse. You would ideally need a good data connection for maps.

Yeah, I suppose VNC is best. For the maps I just want a basic street map of Santa Fe and maybe ABQ. I don't need hi quality I just want to be able to approximate.
