When I first saw the Neo's screen I was amazed by how crisp the
graphics were and the shine on the Openmoko logo looked real to me. The
first thing I tried was the terminal (of course) and I was happy that
the text could be zoomed, and was still readable. I am short sighted
and have seen the graphics on the iPhone and they seemed ok, but this
is the first phone display that I have been impressed with.
