nHD

I was looking at the specification of the Nokia C7 and spotted:

Resolution: 16:9 nHD (640 x 360 pixels) AMOLED

HD resolutions generally refer to 1920x1080 ("Full HD") or 1280x720. So what the f**k are Nokia thinking when they call 640x360 "nHD"?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_common_resolutions

nHD, used by Nokia 5800, Nokia 5530, Nokia X6, Nokia N97, Nokia N8

I presume the "n" means (or is meant to suggest) "near" and "HD" means "High Definition". I'm not sure that a resolution that's half the width and half the height (and therefore has only a quarter the number of pixels) is anything close to "near". Perhaps my rather ordinary car is nSC (near super car)?

Perhaps the reason why Nokia don't seem to have defined what nHD stands for is to avoid any legal issues.

I would suspect it stands for nokia HD. The only way they can do it without getting into hot water. Using nHD without spelling it out is a marketing gimmick for those gullible fools who might be persuaded by such a thing.
