    SkyOrb is available in the catalog. It is identical to the iOS version.

    I think you can get Stellarium but you'll need to use executah and to "hack" your device.

    Really? I had asked about a port for that before SkyOrb was available for the Pre, (and of course before executah was available, we're going back to early last summer).

    So then it is possible to put that on? I don't know much about executah, I haven't looked into it at all.

    Is there ANY way to get a program like Star Walk?

    Oh how I wish it would be possible.

    Are either of these (SkyOrb or Stellarium) accelerometer-connected?

    Will they also show satellites in orbit?

    I have SkyOrb, and it's pretty limited and disappointing. Sure, it's also pretty cheap. The catalog is tiny, and you can't add to it. It's also not very user friendly. I wish the developer of Astromist would port it to WebOS; it ran beautifully on Palm devices (Treo 650, Centro). You could add a 2gb catalog with al NGC, IC, Hicksons, Arps, etc. etc. and contol a telescope with it using wifi or bluetooth. And it was still pretty inexpensive.

    SkyOrb seems to work only in landscape and no satellites AFAIKAFAIKAFAIK.

    I've yet to see a satellite with SkyOrb, however since the gyroscope/compass has been working, it's been winter here( only hours left ) , and I haven't gone outside with it much. FYI, the compass will only read true direction in Portrait orientation. In order to activate the point and shoot controls, you have to press the crosshairs button, wait a second or three, then it will automatically show you what you're pointing at.
    Due to the cancellation of the penny, I no longer give 2 about anything. I may however, give a nickel
