    Has anyone seen any information on the width and length of the Sholes screen? The diagonal size is 3.7" but what is the width of that screen? In the pictures it looks awefully "skinny".

    The length and width of the Sholes as a whole is almost identical to the iPhone.

    The reason for asking is if you compare the Magic (3.2") on screen keyboard in portrait to the same on the iphone (3.5") you'll vomit at the tinyness of the MyTouch. I got used to typing on the iphone, now own a Magic but have a very hard time typing on it. I'm ready to move to any Android phone with a wider screen!

    I found these specs in the phone information here.
    Weight: 169g
    Dimensions: 60 x 115.8 x 13.7 mm
    Android Phone Fans Motorola Sholes

    Google converted it to this in inches:
    2.36 x 4.6 x 0.54

    Edit to add:
    I believe you'll find it is just a bit larger than the iPhone for the screen itself.

    Weight is 169g = ~6 oz

    That's one heavy phone. Better start working out those puny arms.

    Isn't the outside made of metal? Probably related to that. Heavy phones are annoying to use because it gets hard to carry them while web browsing etc but because it has the keyboard and can be used in landscape easily maybe it won't be so bad cause you can use both hands.

    I personally have no problem with the phone weighing 6oz. as I have on occasion carried around 8-12oz. for many hours a day!:D

    169g is fine with me. I would rather it was metal, heavy & solid that plastic, light and insubstantial.

    i.e. More tool than toy.

    169 grams is no heavier than my disc golf driver. Although I will not be tossing this thing.

    Well if the screen is 3.7inch diagonal and it's 480x854 resolution then it would be 3.2 inchs x 1.8 inches or just slightly smaller than a standard business card.
