Next-gen iPhone's display is revealed to have a resolution of 960 x 640
Everywhere we turn, some of the high-end smartphones available in the market are sporting WVGA resolutions that pack plenty of detail in what's being viewed on-screen. There have been plenty of speculations surrounding the display of a next-generation iPhone. Now it's looking more like a confirmation that it'll offer a 960 x 640 IPS display according to after they took an in-depth look at one they apparently have in possession. They basically took it under a microscope and made the discovery by simply counting the RGB elements found on the display – basically coming to the conclusion that the overall vertical and horizontal direction were double over the existing iPhone 3GS. What's even more impressive is the fact that its pixel density is in reality quadrupled over the iPhone 3GS – so that means there will be a lot more detail that can be visibly seen. With that in tow, it would essentially make these current generation handsets sporting WVGA displays look dated.

Looking at the homepage of PA right now, all I c is android (which is good cause I own one). So what you talkin bout willis?? You suck. Stop coming here and waisting my time with stupidity, you idiot box. Now, if only apple could figure out how to incorporate widgets and a keyboard and I would go back.

i have to agree with you on that ONE point ... the only thing really stopping me from ditching my android and getting an iphone is the lack of a hardware qwerty

You'd think with such a high resolution they would have made the screen bigger.

you can tell by the way the article was written that PA is all over its balls. When i read articles about an android device such as the superior Evo, i get the feeling they are trying to bring out the negative points, or at least try to. The way they are speaking of the resolution makes me feel like they are trying to sell it. I dont see the same enthusiasm for the Evo....if they talked about the Evo the way they do about an unconfirmed iphone, it would be a full page long.
