Playbook screensize

Hey,

can anybody confirm those sizes?

 

Playbook size: 193mm x 130mm

Playbook resolution: 1024 x 600

Playbook screen diagonal: 7 inch => 177.8mm

Playbook screen size: 153.41mm x 89.89mm

 

I did some math hoping the pixels are square ;-)

I haven't found the actual display sizes anywhere but I needed them.

Re: Playbook screensize

screen dimensions (width and height) are 1024x600, hard coded, but if the other numbers are fundamental for the proper execution of your code, you'll be better off getting the other numbers using a bit of math with the screen dimensions and the return value of flash.system.Capabilities.screenDPI, which is suppose to return 169.33 (or just 169 / 170).

 

however, no one here has a device yet to test the return value of Capabilities.screenDPI, although confirmation from a RIM employee would be great.

Re: Playbook screensize

Thanks, I'll use those values you fetched from the documentation, it isn't 100% 7 inch, but I was near.

I will use DPI later when I'm shure it's working on the real device.
