Its nice to have options. Like Windows on a Mac. If this guy is out of work, he will definitely be able to find a job now.
I know that an iPhone running the iPhone OS is best, but its good to see something neat like this done.
Sorry, but I like to decide what form factor phone I have. Its nice to have a choice of a candybar style, flip, touchscreen and a high & low end full QWERTY. I'd hardly call it, "Flooding the market." They currently offer a choice of 5 of the 6 (no slider yet) form factors that cover pretty much every phone currently in production.
I don't know what "shock" you may be referring to because Apple will never beat RIM in North America unless they offer something in other form...
My point is that his testing method does not prove which display is best, just which software + phone hardware + display combination is best.
When a normal display (e.g. TV or computer monitor) review is done, the various displays are compared while connected to the same video source. In this case the 2 displays are connected to completely different sources.
This makes it kind of hard to conclude which display is best, just which total package is best.
What's scientific about an opinion? He used no scientific equipment to actually test the two, just his eyes.
With that said, I'm not surprised that he finds the iPhone more accurate. A real test would have involved removing the displays from each phone and using the same equipment to generate the images on the displays.
Only a few manufacturers make LCDs, but they look very different on different brands of devices. If I had to guess, I'd say that its the iPhone software...
You are right 99% of the time. Don't forget a little company named ASUS started selling a netbook thing that was advertised by only the people that wrote stories on it. It was hard to find it in stores and BAM a couple years later Apple is selling a touchscreen netbook and acting like its sliced bread.
The netbook is the exception. It "just happened."
