hi andy,

with python for S60 you have basically full control
over the functions of the phone.
audio, midi, speech, camera, sms, database, sockets (bluetooth, http), etc,

i also have no application using it in combination with pd
but i m sure the knowledge of possibility comes in handy for
specific situations. you could:
- send an sms via pd
- upload/download data to the net if u have no wlan
- do something specific when you receive an sms
- have mobile phones playing along with your patch
- an orchestra of mobile phones controlled by a pd patch
... you name it

one of the most interesting things for me
at the moment is and that has nothing to do with pd
(but could ..) is to use http sockets on the phone
for data exchange between a microcontroller (connected
via BT to the phone) and the internet. as you are
independend of wlan and the phone network coverage
is meanwhile so well you have a very good base
technology for mobile artworks.
i use for this one:



ps: sorry - went slightly off topic
