Exactly, I dont watch movies so thats not important to me - I do however
read text ebooks, use an xterm etc. which is where the hires screen is
really good.  I also have a 320x320 (I think) Palm treo650 - I DO NOT
want to try and do what I can on the FR on that screen - its ok for
video, but doesnt do text well at all.
