A phone is the perfect size to integrate:

  * personal communication (phone, IM, social network)
  * always present camera (still or moving pictures)
  * computational needs (ssh somewhere, do stuff)
  * run useful programs (like email, web browser, games, other apps)

For these to run well in a phone you need at least 480x800. The 
Freerunner's 480x640 is definitly too small for most web browsing.

If I go one step further in size, I'm talking about tablets:

 From personal experience with a SmartQ7 (now sadly broken), I attest 
the following: 480x800 is *not* enough for displaying a more complex 
document properly (eg, a PDF with readable text and pleasently 
displayed), you need a bigger screensize.

  So when you consider such small resolutions... it's definitely not for me.

But good luck, though.
