While many standards exist to compress graphi- cal images, these methods may not provide optimum compression when the image will be displayed on a low resolution device. Handheld devices, such as PDA's and pagers, can benefit from custom com- pression algorithms that are sensitive to the type of graphical image to be displayed, the screen resolu- tion, and the number of colors that need to be dis- played or can be displayed by the handheld device.
