@Mike.. the site seems to be bit not that polished. It's hard to navigate. GSMArena's site is much better..

The video isn't very good at all. Considering Google's cavalier attitude towards privacy -- and outright spying in the U.S. -- I don't think I'll ever want an Android phone.

i don't see any reson to go beyond 480x800 on anything at3-3.5 inches as it already is a pixel density close to photo quality... and i don't kepp my phone that close for inspection ..)

i would put more if there was hardware that wouldn't care if you throw more resolution at it (but that whould require a preaty powerful phone )

by the way, most computers today go between 1280x720 and at high end models 1920x1080 (1200 for 24inch desktop display's)(laptops,projectors,large screen lcd's)

but consider that that's at something you actually look for hours and are waaaaay bigger (although you are farther away )

i can't believe that people can still see the pixels at this pixel density ...

they just need to improve the screen's contrast and sunlight eligibility

ps: just watched the video from the phone = crap, not even vga quality there ... (as you can see resolution is not everything // )

Can't wait to read the review...I have been waiting on this phone...

I wonder if the retail unit will support flash? I only wish the camera module was at least 8MP but I am loving this so far.

Let's see what the review unfolds...positive results I hope. :D

WTF another piece of garbage that cannot be bothered to put a flash on the camera. Waste of materials, water of money waste of time.

Shouldn't we compare this phone to Desire instead of Galaxy S.
I can't see what makes is so special looking at the specs.
and hey, this is Sofia on the clip. I think colors are quite strong on the sample and makes this place look almost beautiful :)

> In reply to [deleted post]please stop trolling. This is about the Acer Stream. Wy are you going off on one about the iPhone4? We are all well aware of it's flaws now. We all think it's funny (apart from Apple fans) but let's leave this thread for what it is about.
