65k Colors?

Is it true that the TP2 has only 65k colors on its nice screen? The palm pre has like 16 Million right?

I dunno if the human eye can tell the difference but. . . what the heck HTC?

Re: 65k Colors?

I can sure tell the difference between 65k and 16 million. You see the color shades more. You can do a test right now. Go to your monitor disply settings and change it into 65k. Then check out some picture. Pay close attention to dark tones.

I have been hammering HTC over and over because of the lacking 3d accelaration on their past next gen ppc's and now I came to a conclusion Pro 2 is also effected by the dreaded missing 3d drivers too.

honestly, business wise its a good move for HTC. Just look at how everyone is excited for it! They will still buy it even if it had no camera. HTC knows they will sell and they figure its cheap to make and the only part that need to be mass made is the bigger screen. They have all the rest of the parts including the old outdated cpu they are throwing in. maybe its their way of saving the environment? Recycle old parts and slap a big screen and name it next gen part 2?

lmao yeah i guess so, its crazy how many people think htc makes the best winmo devices. They make good software, hardware wise there behind most. The Dell Axim was a better all around device [besides ram/rom] and that was released how many years ago?
