The Three20 Project

Joe Hewitt’s new open source UI library for iPhone developers comprises a slew of useful, reusable classes and looks just great. As for the name, Hewitt writes:

The name of the new project is Three20, after the 320-pixel wide screen of the iPhone.

I’m not sure for how long that name is going to be relevant, but, I suppose, even when we get iPhone OS devices with more pixels than 480 × 320, there’ll be some retro value to “320”.
