    I can't take the tiny 240x240 screen any more, my 40 year old eyes just arn't the same as they were 20 years ago..

    Has any one figured a way to at least get the 700P screen to work on the WX?

    Or better yet can some one take the guts from my 700WX and transplant into a Hitachi G1000?

    Still waiting for Hitachi to reintroduce the G1000 with a VGA screen and more memory. I still miss that crash prone beauty.

    Windows Mobile 5 has technical limitations, due to which, 320x320 is not supported. The screen of the 700wx is physically capable of 320x320, BUT the OS does not support it.

    I hope this answers your question..

    I was led to believe that wm5 could support it but they did not want to scale icons?

    Ok then how about the gsm treo with wm6?

    No, the screen on the 700wx is only 240x240.

    The 750? Same answer as above, the screen only has 240x240 pixels.

    All WM powered Treos today have 240x240. Treo 800w will be the first to support 320x320. I guess you have to wait a few months to get it.

    if one were to physically put the 320x320screen on the gsm treo with wm6 would it work?
    I know that the wm treo's screen is 240x240

    No, the screen of the 700wx is NOT capable of 320x320 as someone suggested above. How can we be sure:

    1) Go try out a nice little app called Nyditot Virtual Display. (Be careful and make sure you have a backup). It lets you change the display settings to whatever you'd like. Opera Mini shows a lot of information at 480x480 (I thought the JVM was limited to 320x240), but none of the text is readable because it's like zooming out 50 pct on the page.

    2) I don't think a 320x320 screen would not be able to display crisp 240x240 graphics. I had a Handera 330 way back when. It had a 240x320 screen, and when it tried to upscale 160x160 graphics (for apps that did not support 240x320), it didn't look very good.

    my point is the treo 800w due out will have 320x320. so what will happen if you put a 320x320 screen from a palm treo on a gsm treo with wm6? will it work?

    The iphone already has 480-by-320-pixel resolution. Why can't Palm come up with a better one? The treo is way too behind.

    If you're asking "is it theoretically possible?" then I suppose it probably is - but where are you going to get ahold of a screen? And how are you going to install it? For the cost and hassle (assuming it even fits/works) you might as well wait for a next-gen GSM Treo.

    I would love that res. too. But with the tiny screen on all the Treo's and WM phones you would need a magnify glass to see it.

    I do not think it is too much to ask for a 3.5" or bigger screen with VGA resolution.

    I think someone tried it in the past but the palm would not boot..? You would also have to patch video driver/memory layout which is not easy with ARM code
