Not to pick a fight, but how is resolution tied into email? You mention being email-centric. I consider myself just that, getting between 300 and 500 business related emails daily. Since the early days of Blackberry and a Motorola text pager before that resolution has not been a factor. I've taken a different approach. For the instances I need "great resolution" and a workable browser and other nifty apps, I have gone to an iPad which I carry in my work satchel. I have relegated my Blackberry to phone calls and emails only-- For that, resolution is not a concern to me.
