Resistive vs Capacitive.

Resistive gives stylus handwriting input. Very important for the Asian market.
Resistive works with gloved hands. Very important for me because I spend the week looking after horses, I wear gloves most of the time. Also important in cold climates.
Resistive is not vulnerable to cracking and shattering when receiving an impact.
Resistive, despite have more advantages, is cheaper.

Capacitive is nicer to operate with the finger tip.
Capacitive is better viewing in sunlight.
Capacitive is more resistant to scratching (although if it happens the scratch can't be polished out, a scratch on a resistive screen can be polished out).

Resistive wins.

I haven't tried it but from what I've read the Pre, whilst not a total flop, has a long way to go to get anywhere near the pre-release hype!

Most would barely be able to detect the difference.

Dunno, don't care.

LOL! But the iPhone is a big huge slab, I rejected it because of its stupid form factor.
Ok so it alright when you want to reject something because of form factor. But because others don't use their phone every minute of the day and need something light and unobtrusive to carry in their jeans pocket they are somehow wrong.

I guess many 5800 users went for that phone because of it'd overall size, shape and weight. If they wanted a bigger, heavier and larger screen they would have bought something else.

Yes, many did. But it also has a strong feature set for the price. Incredible value for money.

They could also go for the 5530xm, which has everything but 3G, now under 100 at carphonewarehouse in the UK. Stunning value.
