Hi Rasterman. I am answering becouse I read that you want to know our
opinions :)
I never had Neo1973 but I will buy Freerunner when it will born.

I don't know the advantage of VGA vs a QVGA. To say the true I was on
Wikipedia to know that mean QVGA

To convince you I can only to make some question:

Why a lot of person spend a lot of money to change the phone in every
year? Why a lot of persons spend a lot of money to have the 2.0 MP cam
on their phone? When without a good optic all these MP are realy unused.

The reason is that every one want the "state of art". All must be
perfect. If a VGA is possible, if I have to choose between a QVGA and a
VGA I prefer VGA. Also if I know that I will not use it, or I will feel
the difference. It put me to feel better.

This is the human nature.

And this I think can explain all the flame about 3D acc, Umts, Led
current, etc.

Personally I'd like to have VGA resolution, because Freerunner will be
for me a portable PC (with a bluetooth keyboard), and because I see very
well from near, I'd like to have very definited details more than moving
content. For the rest I think OM enginer know what will be better.

This is my optnion
