It's a 3" screen at the same resolution ie. no more information. I wish people would stop saying that the 3" screen is the best thing about the Zune, it's got no more real estate than the 2.5" screen on the iPod because both of them are 320x240 - you don't get any more image when you use a bigger screen if the res is the same. iPod resolution = 160 pixels/inch Zune resolution = 133.33 pixels/inch Thus when viewing the same image on the iPod and the Zune the iPod would be clearer. Viewing the same text would show more "blockiness" on the Zune. For the Zune to get the same image clarity as the iPod it would need to have a screen resolution of 288x384 (remember, the screen is in portrait orientation). This would give the Zune the same 160 pixels/inch resolution of the iPod, making both images as clear as each other but as you can see there would now be 33,792 more pixels for the Zune to use to display more information. 3" at 240x320 is no better than 2.5" at 320x240, if MS wanted to upstage the iPod's gorgeous screen they should have upped the resolution of the screen.
