    Hi,

    does anyone knows good tutorials, books etc about OpenGL ES for iPhone?

    I know DirectX/XNA quite well, but have no idea about opengl.

    Any info is appreciated.

    wow, you are quick :)

    Yes, I've tried Google, but nothing interesting comes up for iPhone OpenGL ES.

    I think the video card on the iPhone is similar to the PowerVR if not the same.

    Thanks mate, I will check it out..

    I wonder why information about OpenGL ES is so scarce? Is OpenGL for embedded devices are pretty new or not very popular?

    I mean compare it to say DirectX on google search, gazillions of tutorials etc..

    Thanks for the link... However, did you actually read through it? It doesn't give even a simple example, all it is how OpenGL ES is actually implemented, not how we are supposed to start using it. I think he's trying to ask some places where it starts with "Hello World" to things like using the touch for rotation, and gradually moving up, not a referential document of implementation

    But still, thanks for the link as it might be helpful

    Thanks mate, already have this pdf, but I found it bit too hard for beginners..

    I would love to find some step by step tutorials instead of reading specification documents..

    They have some tutorials listed here http://www.imgtec.com/PowerVR/insider/sdk/KhronosOpenGLES1xMBX.asp but for some reason they have no links? Those would be awesome if I could get them somehow..
