Pocket PC Developer Darryl Burling got an interesting partner E-Mail from Handango that stated the following:

"Handango is preparing a special marketing program for applications that support the new square screen Pocket PC. Are your Pocket PC applications screen orientation aware? If so, please send a quick email to [deleted] with your company name and a list of your screen orientation aware Pocket PC applications."

While it is nothing new, that Microsoft also supports square displays since introduction of Pocket PC 2003 Second Edition, so far it was pretty silent on this. While I've seen some non-functional design mockups a while back, so far there was virtually nothing known from OEMs who might picked-up that idea to finalize it.

The ideas reached from messaging focused devices like the Danger HipTop or RIM BlakBerry to clamshell Pocket PC Phone Editions; virtually everything is possible. What do you want to see?

Cheers ~ Arne
