My Treo 700p works well. It has a screen option to increase the size window picture. I believe RHP has done a good job in making the pages clear and usable.

Hi. I live in Australia and went into a Telstra(largest Australian Telco) store today to try out a couple of pda's. I tried a Palm Treo 750 and a Motorola Q9h.
I use the chessatwork skin and changed the appropriate board settings, selecting the legacy and mobile option, and I reduced the board size to micro. The boards display correctly on both the Palm and the Motorola, but try as hard as we could(myself and a store salesperson) we couldn't work out how to select a piece and move it on the board.
The Palm runs wm5 and the Moto runs wm6. Also the Moto has an Opera browser.
I hope its not a network issue. The latest 3G phones are now all UMTS, the gsm network fast becoming a thing of the past. Technically the service provided is similar to what AT&T provide in America in that it is a UMTS 3G with hsdpa @ 850mHz. I know a lot of phones are still on a gsm or edge network, though I am not sure if the style of network should influence your ability to select and move a piece.
Apart from that on the micro board setting using a full screen view, the board displays perfectly within the frame of both the Palm and Moto's screens. I even went to the debates forum and replied to a post.
The best we achieved was being able to highlight the squares of the ranks and files of the chessboard on the Moto. Using the stylus on the Palm only brought up a text edit menu, but we couldn't seem to actually move any pieces at all. Any help in resolving this issue will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
