Not 3D harware (more MPEG4 decoding) but I understand Nokia have worked on IVA
support. Is this work ongoing/likely to be continued?

And on to 3D: I see that a PowerVR kernel driver (binary blob) is available for
at least one platform using the 2.6.x kernel (PepperPad2:
http://airlied.livejournal.com/39506.html), is Nokia able to pressure/request
that Imagination Technologies produce a kernel driver & OpenGLES libs for the
N800's harware/kernel combo and are Nokia planning to develop/integrate this
(please!)? If Nokia don't plan to do so, could we, the developer community, have
the up-to-date binaries so we can do it ourselves?
