Hate to throw a spanner in the works but lets say your designing a website for mobiles, how much will the scrollbar shave off the width you can use?
I think its generally 12/13px for a mobile device and 18px for a normal browser on a PC.

I wish there was some sorta list for international phones (not that it'd be useful much on dA), I'm not sure what the color depth or resolution is on either of my phone's screens...I have a Japanese phone, au A1304TII and it has an inside screen (big bright and awesome) and an outside one (little but just as awesome). au's website doesn't list the screen specs at all so oh well...I'll just keep taking pictures of cool things right off my screen with it. :nod:

about the Nokia sizes..
It is all Nokia Serie 40 phones that have the 128x128 resolution...

Nokia are makeing alot of new phones with different resolutions like the 7600 which have a resolution on 128 x 160
And the 6600 have a resolution on 176 x 208 pixel ... ( info from [link] )

So I think that you have to update the list abit..

Other than that i think it's great that someone is makeing this list.. because there are millions of forumposts with people asking for their phone resolution...

Keep up the good work alteredreality
luvknight Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2004
For the Nokia 6600, the wallpaper resolution would be 176x144
simbolo Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2004
I have a Nokia 6230 which has a TFT screen able to show millions of colours. size still 128 x 128; somebody please make some animated gif files for screensavers.

Im sick of the built in ones. Nokia do such a good job at making amazing phone, and give them out with crappy wallpapers and stuff.
komala Featured By Owner May 31, 2004
Just wanted to plug specs for the Motorola V300 - 176x220, 65k colours. It's brilliant that you're maintaining a list though!

Hi folks,

First of all let me say that I have finally found *the* place where I think our company will get the kind of cell phone imagery that we have been looking for for quite some time. I'd like to say a big "Thank you!" to the managers of this place - great work, absolutely!

Now let me write a few thoughts on screen dimensions. While it is certainly useful to have screen dimension listings available when creating stuff for our own phones, things are totally different when using the imagery commercially. Worldwide there are more than 200 popular color WAP phones out on the market, and screen sizes vary a lot. OK, this is not new and it is not rocket science. However, if an image whatsoever is to be offered to the public, the best thing to do is automatic device recognition through database driven systems that know the devices and that can deliver the imagery as required by a specific device. We have been hand croppping and trimming all of our images until we found a mobile server system that does in on-the-fly.

How does one set graphics to 4096 colors (12-bit depth)? :o
alteredreality Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2004
As odd as it sounds, thats what those screens can do.
zero7 Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2004
Good stuff man, this should be really useful for anyone submitting to this gallery, only problem being it'll have to be updated quite often to meet the specs of new phones. For example, Nokia will soon be releasing phones with a larger display and higher colour depth. In fact, I'm sure some are avaliable now.

Are there any plans to integrate the model of phone into the browsing of the gallery somehow. Once the gallery really takes off it'd be a pretty useful feature.
alteredreality Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2004
Seeing as I sell phones, i know when new ones come out, and will update the list at regular intervals. =P
zero7 Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2004
That job must come in pretty handy running this gallery.
