240x240 Compatibility List -- Treo 700 etc.

Recommended Posts

The 240X240 Dilema.

Many Pocket PC phones nowadays have 240x240 resolution because Windows Mobile 5.0

doesn't support 320x320 resolution and the next square screen resolution supported is 480x480.

However when it comes to prices of touch screens, the screens with 480x480 are too expensive,

so Pocket PC phone manufacturers, who wanted to use square resolution in order to accommodate

a QWERTY keyboard, were forced into 240x240.

Examples of devices sporting the square screens are the HP iPaq HW6515, HW6715, Palm Treo 700w,

and Fujitsu Siemens Pocket LOOX T830 Pocket PC phones. Look for some others later in the year.

When regular Pocket PC applications and games are run, the square screens cut off the information

below the 240 pixel mark. Sometimes, they do scroll but often that's not the case which means

that about 25 percent of the display is missing.

The only real solution to this problem is to have software that is designed to accomodate the

240x240 resolution.

Developers have begun to rework existing games and applications to work on square screen devices

but a convenient list of what's currently available is a little difficult to come by. So, I

decided to start a thread here to hopefully help a few folks out that will be buying these units

this year.

How reliable is the list? ALL the programs listed by myself have been confirmed by the developers themselves so they should work fine. If, not contact the developer on their product page.

Others who add to the list may have tested them on their own devices or not. Hard to control that, so use your own judgement when trying them out.

The Treo 700w in particular promises to bring many new Pocket PC users into the fold. This list

will hopefully guide many of them to what's available.

This list is by no means comprehensive, so if you know of any programs that are confirmed to

work on 240x240 devices, feel free to include them in this thread.

Please follow the basic format that I've started but feel free to add your comments, if any, so

that people will get a good idea of what the software is about. You don't need to shorten

the URL's like I did.
