    I'm curious since HTC was going to have to go the SLCD route, has anyone seen one of these yet? If so, what can you tell me about it? Also, has anyone purchased or been able to purchase the N1 by buying a dev license/kit/whatever?

    Unfortunately, I think that video didn't do much for me. I believe the guy was holding the phones wrong. It seems the SLCD has a weaker viewing angle and AMOLED has much deeper blacks. Still, I've heard that SLCD is better on power management and better sunlight viewing, so I guess it's really up to whether you want better battery life and sunlight viewing or a crisper screen with better colors.

    Have there been any reports of phones sent in for repair coming back with SLCDs?
    Because I dropped my N1 back in June and shattered the screen so I had to send it in and soon after I got it back I noticed it's significantly more usable in direct sunlight.

    Is there any way of knowing for sure if they did put in a different type of display?

    Use it in the dark, you should see black-light bleed on blacks if it's SLCD.

    Or look at the screen very closely, I would assume that the SLCD uses a traditional pixel layout, rather than the AMOLED's pentile.

    In MY HONEST opinion that's criminal. The only thing attractive about it though is the visibility in direct sunlight.

    Tested it in the dark, no bleed. Probably is an AMOLED display. Odd that it is so visible in direct sunlight.
