Is the VGA really that compelling?

This question was in reference to getting the Dell Axim X50 or the Dell Axim X50v. For those who do not know, the X50 has a 320x240 (QVGA) screen while the X50v packs the 640x480 (VGA) screen. The VGA screen is a very compelling reason to purchase the the X50v over the X50. The clarity of the screen is incredible. Text is clearer, and graphics/videos are amazing. In addition, the X50v is the only X50 model with a graphics acclerater which makes videos sharp and smooth using Betaplayer. With the X50v, you have four times the number of pixels using the same screen size. Do you need this type of resolution on Pocket PC? You probably do not need it, but it will enhance the overall experience. Personally, I would not have purchased a Pocket PC without a VGA screen. It was one of my reasons I even tried a Pocket PC device in the first place. Now, it would be very difficult to go back to a 320x240 Pocket PC device, even a 480x320 Palm OS device, for that matter. Wink

By the way, here are a couple of links that show excellent comparison screen shots between the QVGA screen and the VGA screen. Nevermind, that they are also links to some excellent reviews. Smile

pocketnow.com
geek.com

In the pocketnow.com review, you may want to look closer at these three pictures (X50 - QVGA and X50v - VGA and Both Together). In the geek.com review, here are two more pictures of interest to compare (X50 - QVGA and X50v - VGA).

Best regards,
Lance
