Here's an interesting article on the N1's display. Found it rather surprising!

I would agree. Granted, they do show in those examples (if true) that the iPhone has the edge on number of colours, but I've not yet notices that, so I'm not going to worry

noticed this when i transfered some files from my canon g11, flash pictures against a white wall gave just the bad result as the nasa-picture in the gizmodo article... too bad really, but doesn't mean too much in daily use for me

The photo of Mars sunset is a total red herring.

The issue is the gallery app, NOT the display.

Google Mars "sunset", open an image, and you'll see no banding. Save the image then view it in the gallery app, and the banding will suddenly appear.

when I went to the mars sunset link in this thread, via the browser, there was tons of banding, so I don't see how it's a gallery issue.
