Standard way to handle high res screens?

Is there a standard/recommended way to deal with the high res screens such as the Bold? The iphone's retina display assumes an automatic doubling of all screen measurements meaning that one can design a web page specific to a 320px viewport and the iPhone4 retains all proportions and sizes (just at a higher resolution).

The Blackberry devices appear to NOT do that and instead just keeps to 1px = 1px. Short of custom CSS just for the high res BlackBerry devices (basically doubling all measurements) is there any other suggested ways to handle this?

Some follow-up questions:

 

1) Do the browsers in OS6 handle media queries to detect the screen density? http://blog.iwalt.com/2010/06/targeting-the-iphone-4-retina-display-with-css3-media-queries.html

 

2) Is there a particular BlackBerry simulator that best represents the the double-resolution (bold)? It's hard to debug this issue without a device.

Re: Standard way to handle high res screens?

For future reference:

 

 - yes, OS6 does support the webkit media query

 - No, it does not repot itself as double density

 

As such, there really is nothing to do. The higher-resolution blackberries are just smaller screens, rather than double-density, so all web sites are smaller.
