Handphones, in SVG

First, I would to extend a long overdue thanks to reader Jeff Schiller for suggesting that I upload my SVG files for others to benefit. What I learned recently that Jeff happens to be a very well-versed person on the topic of SVG and has written numerously about it over at his site and blog. Thanks also for dropping by, Jeff! I've uploaded them at my account and shared the folder publicly.

This is another SVG I made not long ago (please click on it for a better view). I used Inkscape and created the handphone on the left first using the freehand lines tool. The handphone on the right was based on the other one, but created using the rectangulars and squares tool. The signal strength meter on the top left of the screens were created using the spiral tool and it took me awhile to figure out how to create the wave patterns. This was the biggest challenge for me.

On a related note, Inkscape version 0.44 was released earlier. It features several noticeable changes, including a colour palette at the bottom of the window for easier colour selection.

For a look at my earlier posts on SVGs:
[ Talking, in SVG ]
[ Deming, in SVG ]
[ Inkscape 0.42.2 ]

Hanya beberapa kerat manusia sahaja yang akan panggil aku didi seven (walaupun aku fikir spesis mereka dah lama pupus). Anyways, welcome, bjan! Umah dekat tapi aku tak lekat umah sangat. Do drop by often. This blog, I mean (bukan umah aku).

Thanks for the link, Rol. In my original comment, I was thinking more along the lines of just posting the SVGs themselves (instead of rasterizing them into PNGs) since browsers like Firefox 1.5 and Opera 9 seem to handle SVG no problems now.

Your solution ( is a good one because it doesn't discriminate against certain other browsers that don't yet handle SVG.

Anyway, Keep up the great exploration with SVG.
