    Pretty much I'm looking for an app that will turn on the camera for the top half of the screen so I can see where I'm going while walking and typing on BBM, SMS, Email etc.

    Anyone know if there is one out there, of if it is even possible?

    I'm going out on a hunch that due to os restrictions rim wouldn't allow just half screen camera.

    Thanks.

    I don't think it's possible. I haven't heard of the idea, but it seems pretty cool.

    It's not just RIM restricts their OS to do this. I think it's some kind of hardware issue.
    Be glad, you can multitask:P

    Lol. I walked into my bosses door b/c I was emailing from my berry.

    That app would surely be cool.

    verified it still works on storm2 .607..not my trick but found here a while back..

    step 1. on home screen, go to options.
    Step 2. Go to status
    Step 3. hit BB menu button
    Step 4 select "show keyboard"
    Step 4 type the word "test"
    A white screen should pop up
    Step 5. Got BB menu button
    Step 6. Select "start"
    Step 7. Select "camera" and hit run
    Step 8. Hit any key. Call, menu, escape, or end.
    A little box should come up with the view from the camera, of not then update your OS. Earlier ones I believe don't have this option.
    STEP 9. Press and hold you BB menu button and select home screen.
    From there you go to your messages it contacts and send them a text. Or do what ever you want to do.
    To get rid of the box either open up your camera or reboot.

    it doesnt matter you'll still fall into manholes when ur focusing on your text..

    else just look 50% above what your typing and onto the streets, its the same if not better effect
