There are some really interesting technologies coming down
the pipeline which will componsate for this. I can see, in
the not too distant future, something with roughly the form
factor of a novel, with the same resolution. 

That said, I wonder why everyone thinks jamming XML into a
phone is such a great idea, and I wonder why, when the phones
don't have the hardware needed, the answer is cutting back
XML. Fix the phones first.... the quantum leap in computing
will come from more powerful mobile devices that are 
always networked (or close to it), not things like
palm pilots.
