Hiho,

I have seen the 5500's sport mode described as using a "3D sensor" for its pedometer....does it have the usual type of vibration switch sensor or does it use an accelerometer?

It's an accelerometer, according to the developers' notes:

"The Nokia 5500 smartphone introduces a 3D accelerometer sensor that allows applications to receive information on the device's motion."

Woo! Thanks for that. The API stuff looks good, maybe I can write the G-meter for my car now, F1-stylee :-)

I really must order one soon...maybe after my exam...
