A bigger screen... but a lower resolution?

I'm sorry, huh? Laughing
A higher res screen probably would have pushed the price point above what they wanted. Does it really matter?

It's a 720P screen, have you ever been watching a blu-ray or movie at 720P and thought, wow, those pixels are way too large? Probably not...
Obviously, they're trying to fit the resolution to a standard. And if 720 p resolution looks good on a 42" TV, why wouldn't it look good on a 5.5" screen? Maybe they're not breaking the mold here, but that certainly wouldn't stop you from buying an iP...

What a difference!

It seems everyone has changed their tune...or at the least doubters have been silenced... Cool
So...Big Red??? Is Vz ever going to get this phone?? What happened to the Journal?!!
