Porting to the G1?

Anyone tried porting games to the G1 or new blackberry? What about performance? How about GL anyone do any G1 work and if so is the
device capable of any sort of performance.

I have just about had it with the whole app store fiasco. Not to say
I won't release to the app store any longer but it is time I think to start
looking at other options.

The G1 isn't that fast and they made some bad decisions when they designed it, for instance to place the acc so close to the speaker. This is the very first generation of Android phones, so newer phones will have better performance.

What's this fiasco you are referring to?
