It's all about nothing else than just saving some 5 bucks on the screen (which
probably will not apply whenever this comes to reality, because you have to
buy QVGA-screens from antiquities collectors then), and the allegedly
*better* (huh?) quality of QVGA when compared to a VGA in QVGA-mode. All of
this are moot arguments!!!

(btw: standby isn't related to cpu-power-consumption at all)
