Screen Resolution on Nexus One is not 480 x 800?
If you thought the Android packing Google Nexus One superphone packs a screen resolution of 480 x 800 you are apparently wrong as the Google Nexus One actually has a screen resolution more like 392 x 635 according to “Android Hacker” Luke Hutchinson reports intomobile.
Hutchinson is a PhD candidate at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, and found that his Nexus One wasn’t delivering the results he had expected and thus he investigated and posted a three page article on the matter over on arstechnica.
Although a highly technical document the ordinary layman can understand it. Hutchinson details the PenTile matrix pixel layout of the Nexus One AMOLED screen and it says if you use the commonly accepted method for counting pixels, the Nexus One doesn’t have a resolution of 480 x 800 but nearer 392 x 653 pixels.
Does this mean the Google Nexus One performs any less? Probably not, and I can’t really see Nexus One owners rushing to drop their Nexus One because of this piece of info.
