Widescreen VGA on mobile phones

Hitachi is shipping a wide VGA screen (see below on VGA screens coming through) to KDDI in Japan for its AU model, particularly for Web browsing. The 864 x 480 screen is an odd size but this allows full screen 800 pixel wide Web pages and leaves 64 pixels left on the side for icons!
QVGA is still dominant in Europe but Hitachi Displays is confident this will move over to WVGA once power consumption and content issues are addressed (which is why the story from QCT below on content!)
