tangoGPS: from Gtk development to Openmoko app.

The interesting part of the app is the fact that it is entirely developed on a desktop machine set up for GNOME development without anything special and the resulting app simply needs to be recompiled in order to run under OpenMoko on the FIC Neo1973 phone. The talk will thus focus on the ease with which any Gtk-developer can develop for Openmoko literally in minutes.

Current Project Version: 0.1, fully functional, loading automatically maps from OpenStreetMaps and displaying them, plus location cursor and track.
