I would love to learn to write a app for the pre but the one I have in mind would need to be able to communicate through telnet. I have the denon 3808home theater reciever and it has the ability to be remotely controlled though telnet. Denon has given all the commands to control the reciever and also has a http server in the reciever that you can access through the reciever. The web interface is quite a hassle from the phone though. Upon looking at the forums I get the feeling that currently this is not possible with the stock phone. But I would think it would be possible though rooting and putting the terminal app on. Is this worth the effort to design and hope someone figures out how to telnet or waiting till palm gives us the ability.
