    My bathroom wall socket went on the blink and because of work hours have not been home long enough to have an electrician in for repairs. The mirror really helps in shaving (in a room with no other mirror). Ahh, the versatility of a Pre!!

    Except for the fact that your face ends up looking like this:

    I suppose you have the homebrew torch app so you can shave in the dark? That's pretty cool. You could also get an electric (battery-powered) shaver and shave by feel instead of sight. That's what I do.

    I love the mirror. It's great for a quick face check; to entertain my 3 month old while I'm shooting video of him; even for an angle view when I'm doing a quick repair of something. I'm honestly surprised at how often I use it.

    How do you control it to take pictures when the display is facing away from yourself? I tried one day and couldn't do it because of the LCD only capture shutter button. I kept hitting everything but that.

    Heh, I never thought of that -- I just tried the flashlight with the mirror and it works great! Looks like I need to whiten my teeth again

    There's a patch for that!

    There's one called "Capture with all keys" and "Capture with Volume Keys"

    I've tried Capture with all keys but I had to uninstall it because when you swipe to minimize the window it takes a picture, which was pretty annoying. The Volume key one seems like a solid bet, though.

    Hey a few whiners said the phone was too sharp at the end of the keyboard, you could use it to shave with, an all in one travel pack.

    Even without the patch, the spacebar will snap the picture. That's what I use.

    Careful! If it gets a reputation as a razor blade, then we may not be able to bring it onto an airplane unless it's in a checked bag!

    When coupled with one of the use the LED as a Flashlight patches, the mirror comes in pretty handy for looking at hard to reach pieces of equipment. Examples include poking around the back of your still running computer without accidentally knocking out the power cord or figuring out which of the half-dozen or so kinds of DVI connectors the monitors on sale at your Staples or Best Buy have.

    Hey the mirror is great if you open the camera app, then hold it up for a friend to look at themselves in the mirror then you push the space bar... gets a great pic everytime, and you dont even have to tell them cuz you emailed/sms it to them and all their friends instantly! Love this PRE!

    Thanks! I liked the idea of a lighted compact mirror. lol

    I just downloaded the free "Light My Way Beta" from Preware and love the various colors and fireplace!

    Yes yes yes that's all I ever use is the space bar. As soon as I go into the camera first thing I do is open the slider. You have the most control when using the space bar.
