I am a bit puzzled why Nokia has decided on using 640*360 res on their touchscreens. Windows mobile use 800*480 on their widescreens that are 3 inches or above. WM have a 5:3 image aspect ratio whilst Nokia use 16:9.
Therefore Nokia could have used an 832*468 pixel screen. This would have given a similar (in fact slightly better) resolution to WM. Instead they gave us a lacklustre 640*360. This doesn't make sense since the screens are getting larger and wider. The effective pixel density would not be much more than QVGA, 2.4 inches. Look:
N82: 28022 pixels/sq inch
N97: 44016 pixels/sq inch
HTC: 60277 pixels/sq inch
SE X1: 96711 pixels/sq inch
As you can see SE X1 with its WVGA res has easily the highest pixel density and therefore the sharpest screen. Furthermore HTC Touch HD surprisingly has a higher pixel density than N97 although its screen is larger. So Nokia and Symbian should review their chosen res because the future resides in high def screens not medium definition screen compromises.
everyone! 5 megapixels is more than enough. disposable cameras are only 3 megapixels and the pictures come out just fine!
All this talk and moaning about the camera's 5 megapixel? Unless you are taking photos for huge advertising billboards, you do not need more than that - go read up on foto pixels please ppl. It is like saying a super car is only good if it drives 400Mph.
Most camera phones could do with a better lense, flash and optical zoom, but believe me, 5MP is way more than enough for any person. You do not need more MP.
