Get the Camera Working on Android Ports for Windows Mobile
While the Android ports that have been around for some time now for older Windows Mobile devices, such as the Blackstone, Raphael and Touch Diamond, and the fact that they have been fun to play around with, the feature most sorely missed from such ports is camera functionality.
Despite the ever-stabilising and speedier builds, this has been the most notable omission from the ports, which includes the popular XDANDROID project so far.
However, a few developers over on the HTC Raphael (Touch Pro) side of the forums have got some experimental drivers working, which should allow for the use of the camera on several Windows Mobile devices when running Android. The work is regularly updated and is currently confirmed to improve the situation on the Blackstone (Touch HD), Rhodium (Touch Pro2), Raphael (Touch Pro), Diamond (Touch Diamond) and Topaz (Touch Diamond2). However, potential users should note that specific variants of these devices may not currently be catered for.
To give the camera a try in your favourite Android port, follow the instructions in the project thread.
