cool. as i said. i don't think all the doom and gloom if we had qvga is
warranted. it is still surprisingly good. the physical screen size is much more
of a factor (imho), and if we went to a larger screen at qvga - we'd be in
trouble of a nasty display. 2.8" i think is the limit. most qvga's i've seen at
2.2->2.8". maybe up to 3". but qvga can be usable for an 80x24 terminal. it's
been done before for those who have followed handhelds.org and the early days
of linux on the ipaq, zaurus etc.
