One of the best things about the Newton UI is the crisp low0bit graphics, which is not being shown in those screenshots. Can anyone tell me if this is the case with emulations on other devices?

We ahve been discussing on how to set the correct resolution on the Host to make the best graphics on the emulator. Since it is all OpenSource, we can change the rendering in any way we want.

The best solution of course is, if the host res is some even multiple of the Newton res. That will give no distortions whatsoever. For me personally, on a super high res device like the Note 3, the "blur" looks better than uneven stepping (but then again, since I am over 45, everything looks slightly blurry to me)
