Disagree. here is why.
The phone will format the same FAT system as you can with your computer - but on your computer, you'll be able to monitor the process. I formatted my 16 GB SDCard on my D1 when it started giving me issues - it took 3
format attempts before it completed without an error.
A full format via Windows takes a very
long time, but it is worth it in the long run - it will help spot a fake card before you start using it, for one (although I'd pretty much trust NewEgg) and also, doing it on the computer means that the phone is still usable until the format is complete, making for a lot less down time.
