It always seem to be the way with smart phones isnt it? Just read in Gizmodo of a hack that will give you 320×480 resolution video at 30fps. Sweeet. And have a look at the video below. Nice. So what does this mean? Well, depending on the GPS abilities of the Pre we could (perhaps) see a few AR apps.

You need to root (jailbreak) your Palm Pre for this.
