I still remember that my first mobile phone was a monochrome and with very less pixels. However, the LCD technology really improves a lot. We have lot of variety of mobile phone display resolution right now. There are 128 x 128 pixels, 128 x 160 pixels, 176 x 208 pixels, 176 x 220 pixels, 240 x 320 pixels (QVGA), 240 x 400 pixels (WQVGA), 352 x 416 pixels, 320 x 480 pixels (HVGA), 480 x 640 pixels (VGA) and 480 x 800 pixels (WVGA). And most of them have the capability to surf Internet. The largest resolution the better when browsing Internet. You don’t need to zoom in and out every time.
With current latest 480 x 800 pixels (WVGA) display resolution, we are almost close to it. The minimum ideal resolution for Internet for Internet will be 1024 pixels width. The resolution standard (1024×600) of the NetBook. But Netbook is not pocket-able. Next candidate will be Intel mobile Internet device (MID) like Moorestown and Medfield. But you hardly find any Moorestown devices in the market right now. Not to mention about next generation Medfield.
HTC Touch Diamond2
Samsung I8000 Omnia II
HTC Touch Diamond2 and Samsung I8000 Omnia II are using 480 x 800 pixels (WVGA) display resolution. My brother just bought LG KM900 Arena. It has 3.0 inches 480 x 800 pixels display resolution too. Pretty much like the standard for smart phone nowadays.
