I'm was looking at:


And see that Phonegap is allowing multiple splash screens so that splash screens can be matched up nicely to the most appropriate screen dimensions.   

We should probably do the same in our spec.  

Phonegap guys, are you finding that people are including multiple splash screens?  

I'll just say that the only thing I don't like about the phonegap solution is that the dev has to put in the width and height values (its really error prone)… in W3C widgets, we make the device look those up (unless the format has no intrinsic width/height, as is the case with SVG). That way, the device can determine the best fit dynamically at start up (and store that on first run, for optimization sake).
