I doubt it.
There's more to the quality of a screen than just the resolution.I doubt it.
There's very little reason for any resolution to be much higher than the iPhone 4's screen is. I think all screens (both phones and laptops and desktops) will eventually rise to the 300 - 350 ppi range, but going past that is pretty pointless.
The iPhone 4 is at 326 ppi, so I doubt it will change anytime soon.
When the OP asks "will we seen any competitors adapt to a higher resolution anytime soon?" then I'm gonna answer his question by talking about resolution.There's more to the quality of a screen than just the resolution.
Heck no.800 x 480 is the Samsung Galaxy S.
Side by side, the Samsung is a worthy competitor.
Android would be awesome if when a new version was released, I could get it for my device. Sadly, you either have to root it and install a some hacked version or wait months, years for the carrier or company who made it release a software update.Gingerbread does 1280 x 840, WO on a 4 inch screen that would have better pixel density than the iphone
There's really no point in going beyond the DPI of the iPhone. It's as good as perfect human vision can deal with.
I disagree with this. I think the iPad will need a higher DPI in order for Apple to justify the iPad's higher price. Plus the iPad is supposed to serve as the iPhone's BIGGER brother. Either that or Apple will decrease the price of the iPad.My guess is that it will be a while before the iPad gets a display of the same density.
