Does anyone know if it's possible for a handset manufacturer to build a phone with a small QVGA (240x320) screen that runs under Series 60?
Looking at some of the new phones on sale in Japan (& also the Sharp GX20 in Europe), it seems that 2.2-inch QVGA screens are going to be pretty important in the next year or so. I'd have thought that Nokia & others would want to create phones with similar-size high-res displays.
I know that DoCoMo FOMA version of Symbian supports QVGA and also UIQ, but I see nothing to suggest that S60 can. (Maybe there will be a S70 launched at 3GSM in Cannes?)
...and if it is possible to make a S60 QVGA phone, is it likely that existing S60 apps could run easily, or with minimal modification?

3. Hardware Requirements
The Series 60 user interface has certain requirements concerning the hardware. This
section lists the assumed hardware for the concurrent implementations; it is possible to
extend and modify the hardware to some extent.
Figure 3.1: Series 60 user interface display
The Series 60 user interface display specifications are as follows:
• Resolution: the minimum of 176 pixels (width) by 208 pixels (height).
• Square pixels.
• Color capability (4096 or more colors preferred).
It says minimum of 176 pixels (width) by 208 pixels (height).I guess it can support higher resolutions.Don't take my word for it
