WVGA – 800 x 480 resolution is best resolution for mobile browsing

Jenn, over pocketables.net did a poll last week where she asked people to vote for their favourable resolution with which they are comfortable browsing the web. Guess, who won? 55% of the readers vote for the 800 x 480 popularly known was WVGA (Wide VGA).

I voted for 1024 x 600 though. I personally find that resolution fit for the netbooks that I own. For browsing on my HTC Diamond, Opera Mobile does an excellent rendering of all the web pages that I visit(see this, this and this). No doubt that VGA resolution (640 x 480) came second in the poll. With the slew of windows mobile devices coming out with 800 x 480 resolution like HTC TOUCH HD and SE XPERIA X1, the web browsing on the mobile devices really becomes enjoyable as you have to do a lot less scrolling.
