Okay all you Java programmer types of people out there, is it possible to come up with a real
flashlight using the photo flash/video light LED on a Curve or any other BB equipped with a similar device?
The Curve, and other models no doubt, is equipped with a fantastic and efficient little LED that puts out a lot
of light. It is very useful during low light video and actually works quite well.
I have done a ton of research on the web and all I have found are some very useless apps that use only a whited out screen and backlight to approximate a flashlight. Now this technique is marginally useful so that you can perhaps find your way to an area where a real night light is working, but if one could harness the immeasurably more powerful nature of the photo flash then our Blackberrys would find themselves in the role of a very useable flashlight. Don't worry about the battery life on your phone. How long do you really think you'll be needing the light to find your keys, or the bathroom, or the lightswitch anyway? And those little LEDs are designed to last for many thousands of hours so don't worry about it burning out either.
So how about it guys? So instead of having to keep our video cameras bound to the convenience button, all we need is a basic little application that is bindable to a convenience key and will allow us to switch on and off that nice little LED on the back of our Berrys.
Is this doable?
