That's what I said in the review. They're both 480 pixels across, but the 9700's screen has 40 more pixels vertically.
Thanks for chiming in about the import fees. You'll likely need to pay for shipping too.
Based on my usage, it displays the name of the city and it's accurate in that respect. I didn't dive into the EXIF for anything more specific than that. The battery is proprietary and it's smaller (about 1100 mAh), but I was able to use it for at least a few days (intermittently) before I lost a bar in battery.
Atem: I'm not commenting on the presence of the WM key; I'm commenting on its placement. I used to have an HTC Wizard and it had the key next to the space bar. This is easier to reach, I think, and it makes more intuitive sense. Maybe that's just me.
And for the record, LG stands for Lucky-Goldstar, the two companies that merged to form modern-day LG Electronics.
Using all caps for LG makes sense. Using all caps for WIDEBOOK does not.
I used it with a Nokia E71.
It's generally easier if you're with a GSM carrier, like AT&T or Rogers, since you can find a huge range of unlocked smartphones online that work with the GSM standard. I'm generally a fan of HTC products, so you can look into some of those. If you're with a CDMA carrier, your options are a little more limited, since they may be carrier-locked, but you can sometimes find compatible smartphones online as well.
I asked the Nintendo rep who was helping with the demo whether this would be released as DSiWare and she said that it would be a "full retail release." Perhaps she was mistaken.
