    I know the specs are 800 x 480, but when I came across whatsmyscreenresolution it told me 320 x 508 on Dolphin HD, and changes with different browsers. Just curious about that??? I'm on my Macbook Pro 13 right now and resolution I know is set at 1280 x 800, and says 1280 x 800 on whatsmyscreenresolution.com

    Nobody knows??

    I just tried my 3GS that was laying in my office drawer, which is obviously 320 x 480 , and whatsmyscreenresolution said 320 x 480. Even my desktops and Macbooks are accurate for their settings. So why is the GSII not matching up???

    It is definitely 800 x 480. The numbers you are seeing are just what your browser is reporting to the website and does not necessarily reflect the device. My guess is it's because in dolphin the tab bar takes up tons of screen space, giving you an effective browsing resolution that is lower than the screen's.
