    A single desktop resolution is 320 x 480, but our beloved Android OS allows for a 3x1 desktop therefore giving 960 x 480 in portrait or 1440x320 in landscape. Now applications in full screen only make use of one of the "virtual" desktops thus giving a single 320x480 resolution.

    support to be able to give developers access to the "extended" virtual resolution would be awesome. We could be more creative with out User Interfaces rather than cramming functionality into a limited display.

    If the API's were extended to allow us to do this, would you use it?

    the desktop's actually 640x480. when you's on the center screen (320x480), you can go an additional 160 tp the left or right. 320+160+160=640. At least, that's what it looks like to me.

    You are quite right, the desktop is 640x480, still I would like to be able to use the full desktop size for developing applications rather than be restricted

    Good call! I'm sure games would love the extra on screen legroom, since the menu is soooo.... like a menu :/
