Ok, I've googled til I'm blue in the face and can't seem to locate any resources for developers designers who want to develop content for cell phones. More specifically I want to know all of the standard cell phone screen sizes and resolutions. Any help is much appreciated!

Here is a site with about 50 cell phone reviews all with resolutions
quite a variance in screens...

Wow, it has to be hard to make content with the screens all being different sizes...

I don't know how it works, but I've got the feeling they only care about the resolution, not the size of the screen. I've got a phone with a big screen and I was really happy about, until I noticed the resolution's crap.
Does this make any sense? Regardless to the fact I am not really helping you...

Are there really any standard resolutions for cellphones?

No, everything is per phone and manufacturer as far as I can tell. Currently one of the best screen resolutions is made by Sharp, they use a 240 x 320 resolution and the screens are some of the biggest too, problem is Sharp phones only come with Vodafone contracts.

I did some wireless WML development a bunch of years ago, and back then we didn't have these fancy color gigs.

There was a website that I used, I can't rember what it was, but it allowed you to write you code, and then it would mock up the content in a number of different phone types so you could see exactly how it would display on the different models.

I am sure if you search a bit you can find something like that.

Well I just found out that for the project I'm working on I only have to design for the Tr&#275;o 600. That simplifies things greatly for me.

Hrmmm, you should be doing that for normal websites just seen on a computer monitor.

I remember seeing something like that too, and I'm sure there are a number of such sites floating around. However, a quick googling turned up a free desktop WAP emulator. Maybe this will help, Boudga.

[edit: You can also just try googling for "cell phone browser emulator"--this seems to bring up a lot of stuff, some of which may be helpful.]
