Sounds like it's coming right along!
I would definitely say it would work best being able to load a text file, with or without markup - I know this may make it harder to code, but if it can respond to the wireless keyboard, using the up or down keys to increase/decrease speed, that's a way to remotely control it that doesn't have to have a wheel reinvented (I don't know, though, what the range is on the keyboard - it doesn't appear to be more than about 3 feet).
EDIT: Just glanced at the link above; lots of functionality on display - hadn't really thought of it as a clapboard, for example. The iPhone functionality looks good, too, but I'd think a Pre's screen wouldn't be large enough to make that practical (at least not more than about 5' - 6' away; too bad HP never gave the 'go' on the "Go," huh? ;-) ). Haven't watched the videos yet, but just from the screen shots, I'm leaning toward the reversed text as the easier version to read.
Okay, just watched the first video and see that the clapboard and prompter are different apps - good thing! Something tells me we won't be seeing scriptwriting software for the TP for a long time, though ...
