    What is the average screen size for cell/mobile phones?

    I want to put some pictures jpg and maybe a small movie on a cell phone, but what is the maximum area a cell phone covers? Is 640X480 ok? I don't want cropping, so I would like to know what it is (at least approx). I have done a search and found not a heck of alot on this subject. I know that there are different manufacturers for phones, but I am hoping to find an approx size. Thank you in advnace.
    Also I didn't know which forum to post this to, I hope this one is ok.

    You're really better off just giving us a specific model. Since screen size can differ dramatically depending on phone brand and/or style.

    So there isn't a safe catch all for let's say 75% of phones out there? If I wanted to make a streaming video or something for cell phones, is there an average to go by?

    Few phones have VGA displays right now (I think the HTC Universal/imate Jasjar is one model). Perhaps in the future. Many Motorola phones have 176 x 220 pixels. Nokia series 40 phones have 128 x 128 pixels (some like the 6230i and 8800 have 208 x 208). Nokia series 60 phones have 178 x 208 pixels. Samsung's vary, but many new models have 176 x 220 displays as well.

    You can check individual models out at http://www.phonescoop.com/phones/index_all.php or http://www.gsmarena.com/.

    This site lists screen resolutions for a bunch of different phones.
