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.
