Replying to: Why less pixels??? by Sams
Because this device is aimed at the budget conscious, not the tech savvy. The customers who are attracted to this device generally won't be comparing pixel density. They want an inexpensive Android device that is easy to text with. Most of them will likely be upgrading from an EnV Touch or EnV3. Some may also trade their Ally for this one if they have an annual upgrade. Android isn't supposed to be restricted to only high end devices. If you want a class-leading handset with a full keyboard, there isn't much to choose from other than the Droid 3. Keep in mind most people who are Android OS enthusiasts already have an Android device, and won't pay the Enlighten any notice, as their eyes are on nicer phones. Also, most people who are used to using Android have realized they can type just fine with the on-screen keyboard. Devices such as this are gateway drugs. They ease people into a new software experience, lulling them into comfort with a full qwerty keypad like they are used to on their basic texting phone. If the user experience on the Enlighten is anything like it was on the original Moto Droid, then after they use this phone for a year or so, they'll realize they never even use the physical buttons, so they'll be looking for a higher grade touch screen only device on their next upgrade.
