    Hi everyone,

    Is the EVO openGL capable? The reason why I ask is because beautiful widgets upgraded beautiful weather to an openGL version and it looks great on my wifes Epic 4G. On the Epic 4G there are two beautiful weather live wallpaper options, but on the EVO there's only one. The non openGL version. What are thoughts?

    I thought our phones use OpenCL which is a mobile specific version. I noticed the OpenGL thing in the beautiful widgets update as well, but I can't tell a difference.

    Just noticed that Quadrant system information shows that the EVO and Epic 4G have OpenGL ES-CM 1.1. It turns out that the OpenGL version of beautiful weather is available under live wallpaper on the phone after downloading beautiful weather. There are two options, the OpenGL and non OpenGL version. The OpenGL version appears to have smoother animations.
