(Looks pretty “blurry” to me, don’t you think so? Steve Jobs is really full of it, trying to tell me this blurry screenshot is actually “retina”. )
Robert Scoble got hands-on with one of the new iPhone 4 and he says its display’s resolution is really sharp. Of course, judging by the photos he took with his Canon DSLR, I don’t know if that’s so sharp, what do you think?
What matters to most consumers is not the sharpness but how easily you can view the screen. Think of it this way, would you rather have a 32-inch HDTV 1080P or 42-inch HDTV 720P?
In reality, it won’t make much difference to your eyes unless you are blind like me without glasses and have to stare at our phone 3-inches away.
With a whopping 4.3-inch HTC Evo 4G already being sold out nationwide and picking up popularity and Motorola introducing their new 4.3-inch Droid X smartphone, it’s clear consumers want a bigger screen without squinching their eyes, so they don’t have to zoom-in in the first place.
