320x480 is about 5 years too late

Or about 5 weeks too early?

Centro, part II - PalmOS 6 (*) and 320x480 resolution.

Any takers?


(*) In THIS case, 6 means "5 + enhancements" to allow higher res screens, etc.

Yes, it's so much more trendy to be 320x320.

I've recently upgraded from a PLAM TX to a Newton MP2000!

Is the rumor mill churning again or are you just being silly?

I assume you're jesting since, after all, Palm OS 5.x has supported 320x480 since, oh, five years now.

my point was that i bought this app way back in the day for my T3. i really wanted a 320x480 version to take advantage of my T3 display (pool table is rectangular, not square - makes perfect sense, no?) but it never came and i eventually lost interest. years went by as i moved from my T3 to a Treo 650 a Treo 700p and now a Centro. Palm hasn't released a new 320x480 device in YEARS - and now these guys FINALLY decide to provide 320x480 support.

I think, without any solid proof at all, that Centro, part II will have a larger screen, an enhanced OS marketing-named "PalmOS 6" that perhaps has, for example, WiFi capabilities or hardware GPS support, or something equally saleable, and that the now-multiple loose datapoints we've read about (like the apps with 320x480 screen ability) are due to the behind-the-scenes information developers get from Palm.

Since Palm has the source for PalmOS and a license to "modify at will" AND since PalmOS is "free" for Palm to use - as free or FREEER (?) than Nova, it wouldn't surprise me to see that they know...modified it.
