I wonder if Apple is so determined to stick to set resolutions because it's easier to do skeuomorphism at set resolutions. That does make me wonder why WP7 is so constrained by comparison. Perhaps it's just not as mature?

Personally, I'm surprised at the whole screen resolution being such a bother to developers. Haven't we been making applications that can withstand arbitrary viewport sizes (window resizing) for the better part of a decade now?
