There is a new release of the XPages Mobile Controls project. The new release shows how to use PhoneGap to take a picture via the camera of a smartphone and then the picture is uploaded to a Domino database.

Here is the project, here the documentation and here the direct download link.

PhoneGap's mission: "PhoneGap is an open source development framework for building cross-platform mobile apps. Build apps in HTML and JavaScript and still take advantage of core features in iPhone/iTouch, iPad, Google Android, Palm, Symbian and Blackberry SDKs"

In addition to access to the camera PhoneGap also supports access to other services of smartphones, e.g. geolocation, accelerometer, local contacts, etc.

Here is a quick video demonstrating the sample app:
