If I got that right, we "just need to tune some of the LCD-driver settings, to 
get QVGA performance on a VGA screen"(OWTTE). So the ONLY argument for a QVGA 
screen is the marginal lower price (and it allegedly looks better than a VGA 
in QVGA mode which I don't understand) - but this would clearly be no bargain 
at all if we go for more expensive offer of "QVGA *OR* VGA option". Absolute 
nonsense, it costs 100 somecoin to replace the screen with a 30 somecoin 
cheaper one 'on customer order'.

I opt for VGA and give us a way to drive it QVGA whenever speed is a main 
concern (think someone said this before?). For GTA03 I'd prefer to have the 
SAME LCM as GTA02, just to reduce design risk. NO capacitive ts, NO QVGA LCD 
screen! :-/ Just my 2 cents from HW-dev
