Simulator Screen Viewable Area

So the SDK says that we should make out apps at 1024x600, but when playing around with the layout elements I've come to realize that only 768 pixels of the width are viewable in the simulator. What gives with this? Is this a peculiarity of the simulator or will this be the state of affairs in the final product?

My guess is just for the SIM. Hope so anyways...

After some more work, I'm getting a viewable simulator area of 640 x 375. That makes it a perfect 62.5% scale of the 1024 x 600 dimensions advertised.

Not sure what you're seeing. When I run my browser example (extracted RSSReader app from the homepage of the Tablet OS SDK), I get full width (and a top controls bar, which is currenlty empty).

Just save this image to see for yourself.

Re: Simulator Screen Viewable Area

While the screen output is 1024 x 600 , my screen with elements set to 640 x 375 fill the entire viewable area in my playbook simulator. Here's my layout with the resolution described showing in the simulator.

Re: Simulator Screen Viewable Area

Problem identified. The example RSS app has this line at the top of the classes main view:

 

[SWF(width="1024", height="680", backgroundColor="#cccccc", frameRate="30")]

 

Once I added that above my main view class it renders at 1024 x 680. So I guess if you're willing to let the hardware scale it for you, it can be any resolution you want...
