Watch Video Horizontally?

Eric & the rest of the PS squad.

As usual, great review. Your continued thoroughness and updates are awesome for the community. Thanks again.

Question is: would it be possible, to watch videos in a horizontal format? For ex: when taking pictures the camera shows on screen in a wide screen format.

I am curious if there is an option to watch videos in vertical as well as horizontal format.

Also, could you comment on web browsing as well as overall gprs/edge speed on the device?

Regards,

One other point I forgot to include Smile

I am having a serious debate between this or the ROKR E2 as a non-pda based phone.

I would love your take on this scenario if you wouldn't mind Eric.

dolo, the rokr e2 uses totally new software as well as new hardware. because i have not used either, especially in their final version, yet there is no way i can give you an honest evaluation of how it will stack up.

as for playing the video full screen. the maximum size video the phone can record, as well as all the video i encoded, was QCIF, so it fit the screen horizontally. however on past SE's you have been able to play back video full screen. i have no reason to believe that feature has been removed. unfortunately i had to send our test phone back already so i can't double check.

web browsing over edge is excellent. especially if you skip the built in browser and go for opera mini.

Eric,

Thanks for taking the time to give me some feedback. I am aware that the E2 is going to be something new - was hoping you had a take on it that's all Smile

As for the w810i - I hear many good things about it, it may warrant me to purchase one.

Great to hear the browsing is solid.

Thanks again Eric & PS squad.

Regards,
dolo
