    Screen Specs: 256 Colors?

    I thought I remember seeing the specs for the I300 as 8bit color (256 colors)....

    some of the colors are probably predetermined because they are in-use by the operating system....

    BUT, the photos that I put on the unit seem like they are being rendered with much less than 256 colors...

    maybe we can get a I300 safe pallate?

    although even when I convert a picture down to 128 colors in photoshop, it can still look good on a computer monitor, but when viewed on the I300, it looks like it doesn't have enough colors....

    any ideas?

    yep. i heard 8 bit also...

    if you get FV (fireviewer), you can convert the image. it did a good job with b/w pics on the 35...

    try it and see.. it also has moving images available on FV...

    FV has FV suite. you can x-fer the files to the suite and then onto your phone via a hotsync. works very well!

    with the latest FV, you can also do this.

    Just FYI. you can resize the image and covert the bit-depth as well as some more goodies... the interface is really cool.

    too bad there is no graphics viewer that would allow the entire I300 screen to be use for display.... 160x240..... instead of 160x160....

    kind of like the Phone app does.... the keypad takes up the whole screen, eliminating the graphiti area...
