    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.
