You think we'll see a screen res bump?

    seems like they are ordering higher quality cameras, what you think about higher res lcd's or some other extreme makeover (since the original and 3G are essentially the same minus gps, 3g, speaker moderate bump and back)

    Doubt it.

    The DPI is really good enough. If they make it bigger (or some other device that's bigger) then I could see a bigger pixel count, but if the iPhone is the same size it just causes more problems without really improving anything for the user.

    Nah, I don't think so. It's pretty high-res as it is now...

    I really hope so, although there's all this fuss about higher quality cameras, video capture etc, this is really the only thing i want.


    Although the screen is pretty high res as it is already, there are handsets out there now with higher res screens, the BB Bold for one, and they look much much better then the iPhones in comparison

    I think we will. The BB Bold has a better resolution event though it has a smaller screen.

    I doubt it, but I hope so. My two year old Sharp handset had a VGA (640x480) display despite being only 2.5" and it looked much better than the iPhone. The problem is apps - devs have been designing apps to fit a 480x320 screen and those apps might not look very good scaled. But who knows - I hope the 32GB/Pro model, if there is one, has a higher resolution screen!

    It has been rumored and i would like to see it but im not sure. To be honest id like a higher res and a bigger screen, and make it a few mm thicker if it means more battery life.

    Nah, they would have to have two sets of UI for older gen iphones and new ones, or just stretch the UI which would be lame to fit a higher res screen.

    I can see a possibility of it having the ability to output a higher res for movies or pictures to an external display, but the display itself I can't see happening.

    It better.
    Anyone who says it doesnt need to be improved has never seen any other screen. you can tell the difference between the iPhone screen and other phones.
    Having the same res for two years is just sad.

    Increasing the resolution, would only be good, if they keep the aspect ratio the same as it is now.
    This way, it would be no problem for existing apps on a higher res screen.
