Hi all,

With a Nokia 770 skin already in the wild, is there anyone willing/able to produce skins for the forthcoming Nokia "N" series. Espically the N80, which with built in wifi and a screen resolution bigger than most PDA's would make an awsome contoller for the SB.

Alas my skin modding skills are akin to my cooking skills, so I'm hoping someone in this community might give it some thought.


Cheers,
Michael.

I doubt it. Maintaining a skin is a lot of work. As the 770 is playing in
a category of its own, the effort seems legitimate. But it's just
impossible to have skins for any device available. Give the Handheld skin
a try - it should be fine on most mobile devices.

The screen resolution is listed as 352 x 416 pixels (and I think it can switch as you rotate the phone ... so 416 x 352 pixels as well.
The Nokia 770 is listed as 800 x 480 - it makes a big difference.

I tried it on my Palm Tungsten C (320 x 320) and it is not really usable.

Maybe some screen geometry information (by URL or config) could be be checked at run-time to try to present different versions of the views - but ... they is always the /Handheld skin to fallback to which does work pretty well.
