    It showed a woman watching James Cameron's "Avatar" on a mobile device. She appeared to be in awe. Why would anyone want to watch any movie on a mobile device?

    ITA Tonis, let alone a movie like Avatar which needs the big screen to get the feeling of the scope. Not to mention the sound quality.

    I've done it on airplane rides where they don't show movies. It is not actually that awful - you tend to focus in and the size issue can fade but, clearly, Avatar needs at least a 4x10 inch screen (g).

    I watch movies sometimes. It is nice ti be able to put on my BT headphones and watch a movie in bed or something. Also when camping and trying to fall asleep in the tent, riding the bus, etc. Of course movies are better on larger screens, but can you carry those in your pocket?

    I watch movies on my ipod touch 64 sometimes. It's not awful, when you're somewhere there's no other option. Of course, if I'm at home, I'll pick my 62" hdtv every time over a mobile device.

    I don't think it's the fact of watching a movie on the phone, it's that the Samsung Galaxy S has a Super AMOLED Screen that is AMAZING, drop into a T-Mobile store and look @ it... it's amazing.. i'd watch a movie on it any day of the week.

    480x800 on a 4 inch screen with 16,777,216 different colors....

    I've watched a movie on my 8320 and my 9700 while at work. Not many other options for watching a movie...

    The biggest change I make to phones in stores is turning all the BB's from displaying signal strength bars, to dBm (the old alt+nmll trick).

    I wish I'd have thought of it and configured the X I was playing with as a hotspot.
