How big is a ‘A4’ image in pixel?

The ISO standard for A4 is 210 x 297 mm (8.27 in. 11.69 in.)  The size of an image depends on the image resolution. For example an image with 300 dpi resolution should have a size of 2480 x 3508 pixel ((300 x 8.27) x (300 X 11.69)). Of course, you might want to subtract for your margins.

More examples:
72 dpi (web) = 595 x 842 pixel
300 dpi (print) = 2480 x 3508 pixel
600 dpi (print) = 4960 x 7016 pixel

Synchronization with HTC Legend

HTC provids the HTC Sync tool to synchronize data between the phone and your computer.

I installed the tool on my computer but it didn’t detected the phone. After i deactivated AntiVir and the firewall HTC Sync detects my Legend. But after clicking at the sychronize button nothing happens. In a forum i read about problems with the Sync tool by using poor quality USB cables. So I connected the phone directly to the computer via the orignal cable and the synchronization worked then. But I could still not enable the synchronization of the contacts.

At the end i decided to use MyPhoneExplorer with the Android Client. It’s a really great tool to manage your contacts and data on your phone.
