Sony Ericsson has now finally released certain attractive and important Application Programming Interfaces (API's) for the P800 - the Camera and Vibrator API's.
Sony Ericsson Camera API
The Sony Ericsson Camera API implementation of the Symbian Onboard Camera API Design described in SGL.GT0126.031) is implemented for the P800 smartphone and compatible with P800 Organiser software CXC162001 R2A14 and later. The Camera API supports still image capturing of RGB bitmap based pictures of three sizes and direct-to-screen view finding of one fixed size (QQVGA). All mandatory methods are supported, but optional features of the Symbian Onboard Camera API Design such as video, flash and zoom are not supported.
Detailed API information is available within the downloadable package. The Camera API support is not pre-installed on the P800 and must be installed separately. The package provided (ECam.sis) provides an install time check that the target phone supports the Camera API. Any application using the Camera API shall embed ECam.sis into the application package.
Sony Ericsson Vibration API
The Sony Ericsson Vibration API can be used to turn on and off the vibration function. The API can also be used to specify the time to have the vibration turned on or off and the number of times to run this scenario. Detailed API information is available within the downloadable package. The Vibration API support is not pre-installed on the P800 and must be installed separately. Any application using the Vibration API shall embed Vibration.sis into the application package.

Webcam app (NOT streaming video)

Ok, now that there is a camera API...

How hard would it be to have a webcam app that uploads a JPG every 10 seconds to an FTP site?

If you wanted to be able to remotely start such webcam app, how would you do it? Could you use an SMS message to tell it to start uploading? Or would there be an easier way just using TCPIP?
