Honestly, if the freerunner did not have VGA screen but QVGA, I would not
buy it !
For me, VGA is a must have feature. As other said, there are plenty of QVGA
devices. I don't want one of them because of the resolution.
I have a Dell Axim X5 and I'm really sad about the QVGA resolution (in
addition of the windows OS :( )
Please, please ... keep the VGA screen !
