iPhone 4 to 3GS screen comparison

It seems that Apple products are the only ones that get my blogging juices flowing these days… Oh well, I guess I’ll just roll with it. Besides, this is barely a “real” blog post.

There’s been a lot of talk about the new iPhone 4’s “Retina Display” screen, with some amount of tech controversy around the idea that the eye can’t discern its pixels at 12 inches. I guess that doesn’t really matter in the end; what does matter is whether or not the screen looks good / better than previous ones.
And it seems Scoble put an end to the debate with the pictures he posted today. The result leaves little doubt… Here’s part of the picture (click to get a larger-but-still-manageable version):

I have to say: I’m not incredibly excited about this feature, but all “Retina Display Marketing Magic” aside, the screen does seem to be pretty awesome. Oh well, I guess we’ll all see for ourselves in a couple of weeks anyway…

Side note about the WWDC keynote: Forget about iPhone 4 and Retina Displays, the most interesting thing in it all was the release of iMovie for iPhone. Because it opens the way to iMovie for iPad, which itself opens the way for more content *creation* apps on the device, as opposed to our traditional view of content a *consumption* device. Interesting when put in context of Steve Job’s interview at the D8 conference, where he stated that he didn’t see any reason why these machines couldn’t also do content creation. I guess we might see more iLife apps for iOS devices in the future…
