    I don't expect Palm to enable video capture on the 8GB Pre.
    Wrong. 8 GB is more than sufficient to store video.

    The limitation (if any) will be the the 30FPS. Is the processor capable of capturing and storing at that rate?

    On the 1st page of this thread.

    That's for playback. How about recording?

    No that is for recording.

    I was reading the description of the Texas Instruments OMAP 3430 processor that powers the Pre and came across some very interesting information that could point to features Palm could add via webOS updates. Currently, none of these features have been announced as Pre capabilities:

    Multistandard video file support and DVD-camcorder quality video recording

    The increased capabilities of the IVA2+ enables multi-standard (MPEG4, H264, Windows Media Video, RealVideo etc.) encode and decode at DVD resolutions. With the advanced multimedia capabilities of the OMAP3430 a multi-standard DVD-quality camcorder can be added to a phone for the first time.

    And:

    IVA™ 2+ (Image Video Audio) accelerator enables multi-standard (MPEG4, WMV9, RealVideo, H263, H264) encode/decode at D1 (720×480 pixels) 30 fps

    updated: the recording function has been enabled by software, at this testing stage, it can do 1FPS at 720×480 pixels, and it definitely can achieve 30FPS by the effort of the software developers, let's wait and see.

    Pre rocks, also kudos to whom work for it!
