    iPhone3GS is 100% compatible with the mimics, you will need to use the A/V cable for video as it doesn't have VGA/HDMI support. The best non-iPhone solution would be the iPod 4th gen.

    Basically any iOS device that has video out capability and bluetooth will work with the mimics.

    The iPod touch 2nd gen hasn't been tested yet but it should work, don't quote me though

    PC and Bluetooth

    Can you connect a pc and Mimics at the same time and just use a physical mouse and keyboard for the pc? I understand you need the 4 wire ribbon cable to use the touch screen with Mimics, but does it take over all video inputs? I wouldn't even mind pulling out the dash to switch video cables for use with a pc but I don't want to be switching the ribbon cable back and forth.

    Also, can you connect multiple bluetooth devices simultaneously? I would like to free myself from having to connect two cables to my iphone every time and instead stream my music to my stereo, and maybe even add a mic to get around the echo problem, using bluetooth.

    You can have both a PC and mimics, you just need to switch the video input over. Instead of using a mouse and keyboard, i would just get a Griffen Powermate (the silve knob thing) to navigate around.

    You can't use any other bluetooth while the mimics bluetooth is on. The iPhone itself does not support this sadly.

    Too bad it can't be jailbroken to allow simultaneous bluetooth devices

    Does the Mimics Frame option come with the backup camera wire exposed, and is there a way to rotate non-landscape apps 180 degrees so they are easier for the driver to read if need be?

    It does have the wire exposed. Currently the apps will be sideways if they dont have a landscape version. You can let sbRotator rotate them that way, but the touch wont be accurate to that rotation.

    anyone know if this is on sale yet?
    will this work on a Lilliput 869GL-80NP/C/T?
    i've no idea if the 8'' screen uses a 4 pin ribbon cable.

    According to the specs your monitor is compatible. It is infact a 4-wire touchpanel.

    I do believe mp3car are shipping very shortly.
