I gotta say I hope they improve the screen. Compared to the screens on the newer phones coming out its dot pitch isn't all that great.
The screen on my droid isn't the retina display, but it's dot pitch is fine enough you don't see pixels, and there's no "screen door" effect to it. After viewing it for a couple weeks now I really notice how much sharper it is than other devices.
I picked up the iPod touch last night to play some games, and put it down after about ten minutes because it was giving me a headache. Compared to the droid screen it looks blurry, not to mention tiny. I turned on my old phone to get some photos off I hadn't transferred and couldn't believe how horrible it looked.
Kind of like going from an HDTV back to an old analog set in 1980 with a bent antenna, dials missing and vice grips for your channel changer.
