    Default Nokia 5800 screen resolution

    I was wondering why nokia has made only up to 360x640 resolutions for the screen while Windows Mobile has 480x800 does anyone know why they do this?

    though the exact reason lies with the nokia R&D team but it gives the widescreen 16:9 aspect ratio as comapred to 4:3 ratio for vga and qvga devices
    it might be beneficial for video watching .
    as far as 800*480 is concerned its wvga resolution .i would prefer vga over wvga due to more apps compatibiliy

    i think thats because its easier to hold the phone if the phone doesnt get as wide as the HTC phones get!

    Lot of new WM phones have far lower resolution like the Omnia with only 240x400,also don't forget that actually WM phones have about 65k to 256k colors while the Nokia 5800 has 16 millions

    well frankly i can bet tha no one can spot the difference between a 65k colours and 252k colours ...infact in most of the cases it is difficult to differentiate between 65k and 16m colours

    what really makes the difference and is noticable is the screen resolution.a 2.8 inch 65k vga screen of htc diamond looks far better than 2.8 inch 16M qvga screen of n95 8gb

    well i actually like the screen on the iphone way more than the one on the 5800, iphones screen is much easier to tap on and it reacts better on the tapping
