Meizu's M9 To Sport Retina Display, Android 2.2

One of the iPhone 4’s most marketable features may be getting a bit more common soon: notorious iClone maker Meizu has said their upcoming M9, sequel to the madness that was the WinMo-powered M8, will sport a 960×640 screen of similar size — in all likelihood the same exact model as Apple’s. It would run Android 2.2 with a custom UI on a 1GHz processor and 512MB of RAM.

The catch is that hardware parity is useless if you don’t have the software to back it up. A high-res display on my phone would be great, but is it something that will significantly improve the Android experience?
