9600x5760 would be 144 times the resolution. (Multiplied by 12 in BOTH directions)
1600x1200 would be 5 times the res, and the wrong aspect ratio. (You probably meant 1600x960 though, which would be 4 times)

12 times the resolution at the correct aspect would be 2771x1663 to the nearest pixel. (173 extra pixels)

:golfclap:

Well done. I am improved by being corrected. Not sure what convinced me the screen was 800x600.

You can buy a Phone that is 4 times faster and has 12 times the resolution, for th same money...
Wow!! The HTC Legend and Desire have a 2.4 GHz CPU, 1.2 GHz memory bus and a 9600x5760 display?? That's impressive.
That would be a display that's sixteen times better. Four times would only be a 1600 x 1200 display. Which...they also don't have. :lol:

depend of your resolution definition...
to me you seems to speak of "pixel dimension" and not of resolution... as resolution is generally given in DPI or PPI...

It covers all of those and not just the one segment. Yes the specialist can do the other segments, just not as good as the Pandora does.
For me I need a UMC, and the games will be a nice touch, I'm hoping it gets me back into play them.
Same here! :)

Well, here's one which took some shortcuts on the fact-checking...
http://www.latestngadgets.com/openpandora-to-be-launched-in-the-market/4780.html

The launch of OpenPandora device was delayed many times and finally the company has begun assembling the parts in United States and is expected to ship the first order.

That's a really nice Youtube video that they have embedded. Has that been mentioned on PandoraPress yet?

Ok, here's the original site where that video is from. A nice little pre-review...

Can someone take a picture and put it on Wikipedia now we have actual units?
We could really do with that ancient render not being in all the articles...

EDIT: Oh done...

"On the gaming front, Pandora supposedly runs Quake 3 Arena rather well, however it's promoted as a device capable of running older games and console ROMS via emulators--heck, the Motorola Droid can do those equally as well. Currently pricing is unknown"

Other (like the Motorola Droid) devices DON'T HAVE awesome physical gaming controls out of the box, Kevin Parrish, you TWAT!! :angry:

Well, it is unknown, for anyone who wants to buy it now. Unless they can get into the first batch somehow, which seems to be sold out.

A decent part of these articles/comments are full with the same complains I've already seen in Pandora threads on 4chan, in which 80% of the posts are made by Trolls, 12% by retards and only 8% are made by actual people who like the Pandora and support it.

For some reason I find it amusing, no idea why.
