Pocket PCs With Square Screens? Maybe…

by Reads (3,578)

Handango recently sent out an email to its partners looking for software to promote in a special marketing campaign. This is of course interesting because there aren’t any Pocket PCs out there right now with square displays. Windows Mobile 2003 does support resolutions like 320×320. Could this be a sign of new things to come?

Here’s an excerpt from the email posted by Darryl at burling.co.nz:

Handango is preparing a special marketing program for applications that support the new square screen Pocket PC. Are your Pocket PC applications screen orientation aware? If so, please send a quick email to [deleted] with your company name and a list of your screen orientation aware Pocket PC applications.

The most fun conclusion to jump to is this push is designed to support new devices coming to market, say…something like the Treo 650. After all it uses a square display, at 320×320 pixels. Ok, so it might not be the Treo 650, but preparation for a new breed of Windows Mobile phones is likely. The biggest knock on WM phones to date is their size. A re-worked screen could go a long way to address this concern.
