HandEra Calls 240 by 320 Resolution an 'Emerging Standard'
HandEra has released a statement that calls QVGA an "emerging standard for Palm Powered devices". QVGA is HandEra's name for screens with 240 by 320 pixel resolution, additional display fonts, and a collapsible virtual Graffiti area. So far the only device that supports QVGA is the HandEra 330 but Mike Walter, vice president of software development for the company, said there is a "strong interest within the industry in licensing HandEra's technology," implying that we can expect to see other, non-HandEra, QVGA devices in the future. HandEra's statement says that these can be expected within the coming year.
For developers wanting to get a jump start on this, HandEra offers its new QVGA Compatibility Testing Process, which ensures that an application supports the high-resolution screen, properly implements the QVGA extension APIs, and meets basic Palm specifications. Developers who pass these test will be listed on the HandEra web site and receive the QVGA logo as proof of certification.
