Choosing an Android phone: what are you doing with it?

Long and technical, but rather interesting article on Ars Technica, delving into the display of the Nexus One phone and why it isn't quite what it is cracked up to be. There's a lot of detail there, but the short version is that the display uses some fancy subpixel tricks, so it only kinda-sorta has the claimed resolution.

The main upshot of the article seems to be that the Nexus One's screen is enormously pretty, and probably the best around for viewing pictures -- but for text, it's necessarily a little blurry. So whether you prefer a Droid or a Nexus One may well depend on what you're looking at on the screen...
