Apple As everybody already expected, Apple "unveiled" the new iPhone tonight. It's called the iPhone 4, and brings the iPhone up to par with what's already available on other smartphone platforms, hardware wise, while raising the bar on a few specific points (the display, mostly). The company also announced a name change for its mobile operating system - it's now called iOS. What we didn't get during this year's WWDC keynote? News about the Mac, Mac OS X, or the Apple TV. Make no mistake: the iPhone and iPad is where it's at.

No, those OLED screens that pretend to have "854x480" like the Nexus One use a trick... It use color dithering, I.E: not every pixel has full color range, you need to combine multiple pixels to obtain the color you want.
On the other hand the iPhone 4 screen seems to be real 960x480. Thus the display will be a little sharper than the actual NexusOne like phones... but until how many weeks? ;)

Did I say Nexus One or AMOLED?
There are enough normal non-AMOLED screens with 800x480.

many errors here. at the moment, 800x480 are AMOLED screens. 854x480 (real 16:9 aspect) are usually normal LCD ones...

basically, Nexus One/Desire (800x480 AMOLED) vs Milestone/Droid (854x480 LCD).

AMOLED are the ones with half pixel resolution at red and blue channels (but full resolution in green channel)... but AMOLED displays has better "black" than LCD ones (including the new IPS display for iPad and iPhone4).
