Hi,
New to the forum; Generally a lurker; Considering switching gears from Palm Treo 650 to I3G; I just came across this; It gets disheartening by the minute; Not only am I disturbed by what it will cost my wife and I for our family plan and unlimited data, but now it looks as if we will be truly sacrificing quality on the new model Iphone:

This compares the iphone to the ipod touch. Are you assuming that the new iphone will use the same screen as the touch in order to cut costs? A bit of a leap maybe?!

Are you sure you linked to the right article? That article is from Sept 2007 and says that the iPhone's screen is better than the iPod's screen.

That article is from when the first batch of iPods were released. They had bad screens with both the early hardware and the 1.1 software. It's been fixed and they're pretty close to equal now.

Well, the way I understand it is that the comparison was done last year comparing the Touch w/ the original Iphone; The Iphone won the comparison. I am told that the 3G model will have the same screen as the 'Touch'. I cannot verify it, but I am told that the data ob Apple's site verifies this. Hence, Apple is giving us a lesser screen on this model.
