Porting a software OpenGL layer isn't that hard. Fabrice Bellards TinyGL 
would be a candidate for it, because the Omap 2420 (N8x0 uC) supports 
vfp. http://fabrice.bellard.free.fr/TinyGL/

The other question is a hardware supported OpenGL layer. This has to use 
the internal framebuffer (as I recall the specs correctly), which is not 
big enough to hold a complete 800x480 frame at 16 bpp. But maybe 
rendering to external RAM is possible. I don't know.

What I would really like to have is TV-out and a presentations player 
for Maemo. :-) Would be really nice to connect my N8x0 to a beamer.
