N900 software rendering

Some time ago I wrote a software renderer and presented the video on N73 running it. Then I ported it to N900, updated the model and lighting, but never actually published the video of it in action. Well, here it is:
I think the low FPS values (around 12) were the reason it was not published. It is due to the amount of triangles the new model consists of. The old Caesar's one was much simpler and thus rendered faster. With proper low-poly model the above animation would run with at least 30 FPS without any problems.

Fun side note. The software renderer on N900 was actually faster than running the hardware accelerated version. Well, hardware and/or drivers sucked greatly on that phone.
