Fixes issues with the Palm Pixi device (you have a new "platform" called "PALM_PIXI" that is compatible with any iOS device). Please use the "WEBOS" platform for 2.x distributions, only.

I hope the pixi market share might bring a few bucks for you. The Pixi-AppCatalog is quite empty, so there's a fair chance IMO.

Cool. I only have a Pre2, so what are the differences? Can I just flag it as Pixi compatible now with my Pre2 tested and working code, or do I need to take a few things into account? Importantly if resolution has to be accounted for, and I know my code works on my Pre2, then will testing on a PC at Pixi resolution be enough to be confident that it should be fine on the Pixi?

Cheers

Palm Pixi is a slower machine than Pre/Pre2, so you can't guarantee that an app that works on the Pre will work on the Pixi at the desired standard.

It's only officially supported to WebOS 1.4.5. You will have to mark your app as minimum 1.4.5, not 2.XX. The Pixi can be made to work on 2.X, but it's not officially supported.

The biggest difference though (as you've mentioned) is that the screen resolution is 320x400 (not 320x480 like the Pre).

Good work Gernot. Many thanks =D

Thanks Gernot for this "new" platform. In Spain Palm phones was distributed by Vodafone, but now they don't sell Palms anymore. :(

BTW, where (URL) can I see the available apps for Palm?

Its a bit tricky without a device as the general store isn't available.  However, this https://developer.palm.com/content/showcase/app_showcase.html should let you search for things.

Could PLATFORMINFO$("") be updated so that it returns a different value for HP Tablets ?

another quick update, that fixed the X_world2screen and adds the getscreensize for usescreen surfaces.
I also might have changed the buffer size for the android sound system. Can you please test if it's working better now?
