Lenovorola TRIPLE-ola: New Moto G, Moto X and 360 wristputer UNZIPPED

PurplePerson

You've pretty much just described my Xperia Ray (which I will be loathe to give up). It's small with a 3.2 inch screen, but a 854x480 resolution so pin sharp. It's tough as nails and gorgeous as well... like Michelle Rodriguez. Decent 8 megapixel camera and SD slot. The only problems are that it is single core with 512MB RAM and the amount of built-in storage is pathetic. My perfect phone would just be a new Xperia Ray with updated internals. I wouldn't even want them to change the styling, I still think it's the best looking phone ever made (that I have seen).

Facepalm

Same resolution?

"Sure, the 7in screen’s resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels is barely more than an iPhone 4’s 960 x 640"

I'm not a maths professor or anything, but...

1024 x 640 = 614400

960 x 640 = 614400

I could probably rustle some expert up to prove that those numbers are actually the same!

E Ink, Epson to build 'retina' display for e-book readers

Much better than colour

Seriously, now we're starting to get somewhere. The addition of colour to E-Ink displays will be nice, but a massive increase in resolution is absolutely critical (for me at least). When I can get a reader that can comfortably render a full page PDF (technical books etc.) then I'm in, maybe in an 8" screen size (10" seems a little large).
