QWERTY bar form factor.
ultra similar specs to my current TyTN II except of course for the glaring form factor difference [which also lends to the dimensions] and battery [which would lend to weight and uptime]. Very very tempting... much more tempting than the Samsung SGH-i780 with it's not so standard 320x320 resolution. I'd pick low-res over application compatibility any time... still I am hesitant to change devices merely for form factor's sake only [honestly though that hasn't stopped me before], now if this were 480x640 vga I'd be queuing up to buy one [higher res + form factor 2 reasons would be enough I suppose].
it's posted as coming soon on the NA hp website but hopefully we get it in Asia 1st :D
So QWERTY bars aren't going away yet hooray!!!

Tips & Tricks|Orientation Aware Backgrounds

I just wanted to share some stuff I learned over at xda-dev's forum today.
Anyway as the title states this is about today themes and Orientation Aware Backgrounds. It's really quite simple
All you need is 2 images [3 if you want to change the Start Menu image as well] of the proper resolution.
tdywater_320_240.gif [Landscape Image] = 320 x 240 image
tdywater_240_320.gif [Portrait Image] = 240 x 320 image
stwater [Start Menu Image] = 190 x 290 image
tdywater_640_480.gif [Landscape Image] = 640 x 480 image
tdywater_480_640.gif [Portrait Image] = 480 x 640 image
stwater [Start Menu Image] = 399 x 586 image
What you do is copy the files to \Windows directory and viola! Orientation Aware Backgrounds!
Notes: The theme's default images will be used once you switch themes. So you would need to copy the files back again to \Windows dir for it to work again, what I do is I have placed Wallpaper sets in ZIP files on my Storage Card so I can change and change as desired.…
