Now, this isn’t the first time that the Lab has worked on mobile applications. I don’t know what the eventual fate of the last mobile projects were, other than that they were apparently abandoned. Either that, or the projects are already up to somewhere around 0.25 DNFs (Duke Nukem Forevers; 1 DNF=14 years).

I wouldn’t expect this job to involve putting a Second Life viewer onto a mobile device, and neither should you. Most likely this will involve a very lightweight application (like some of the non-graphical viewers) or some ancillary supporting software (on a par with, say, SLim – only that actually works).
