Really 2.4" ?

was under the impression, that the N80, E60 and E70 all have 2.1" screens as the N70, N90, 6680 and basically every other old series 60 phone. 2.4" is quite a bit bigger than 2.1" and not that much smaller than 2.8". says the N80 is 2.1" And I read it somewhere else too.

So, whats right? You guys obviously work with a N80 so you can just measure it yourselves.

If it's 2.1", then the situation is even worse than I mentioned in the article.

>Why not let the user set a minimum text size in pixel like Opera desktop does?

Because this defeats the purpose of the high resolution screen. What's the poind of having a 352x416 screen when even a PocketPC 240x320 can show more text information in one screen then?

so, what is it, I just want to know what screen size it is, since it might turn me to the Nokia N71 which does have a 2.4" screen


I would rather be able to read web pages at all, even if that DEFIES the purpose of a higher resolution screen. We should petition Nokia to use physically larger screens. Maybe 2.6 or 2.7" screens would be the perfect compromise, couple that with Operas zoom funtion and you get the desired result.
