I would expect that Nokia does have an OpenGL ES driver driver from TI
since they probably provide something like that when buying licenses to
build devices with this CPU. I downloaded the OMAP2420 Linux release
from TI, but it also doesn't contain anything like that.

Seems as if H/W 3D is not open source compatible. Probably since they
licensed the 3D core from PowerVR...
