TREO 600

One problem I am having is that while the phone runs Palm OS 5 it runs at a resolution of 160×160 not 320×320 like most OS 5 devices. Most applications re-written for OS currently expect that hi-res display as well and don’t run on the Treo. Using the lower res version usually doesn’t work as those seem to be coded to assume low res=OS 3 or 4. My solution was to use older versions that I had archived that could support color and 160×160 but that isn’t the answer for most folks. I bring this up in context here but this is really about PalmSource needing to take control of APIs and define them so developers are not constantly chasing a moving target.

Not good… hopefully things will get resolved soon.
