EDGELIB supports high-resolution applications for Windows Mobile and Symbian devices.

Windows Mobile 2003 introduced high-resolution support for devices with high-resolution display hardware. Certain new Pocket PC's, like the Dell Axim x50v, have a VGA resolution screen (480x640 pixels) and certain new Windows Mobile Smartphone models, like the Orange C550, are equipped with a QVGA resolution screen (240x320 pixels).

Symbian 8.1 introduced high-resolution devices such as the Nokia N90 or the Nokia E60. The display is equipped with double resolution in comparison with other Series 60 devices (352x416 pixels). As of Symbian 9, devices can also have a different resolution for example the E61 has a QVGA landscape display (320x240 pixels).

Using EDGELIB, the developer is able to use the high-resolution screens of these devices just by editing a resource file for Windows Mobile, using a Windows Mobile 5+ SDK or using a Symbian 8+ SDK.

Look below to see the difference in quality between low and high resolution devices. Note that the left image is zoomed in to 200%.
