    Hi,
    I see that HD Video on the iPhone 4 is actually 960X720, which is a really weird resolution.
    Do you think a cydia app could change the resolution to 1280X720 ?

    I have to agree to the OP that this is not kinda "true" 720p HD. 720p usually is defined as 1280x720 px progressive scan.
    but you cannot change the resolution since screen is limited to that

    No, you cant change the resolution via software. I think it would be pointless to have such a small screen have such a high resolution, eventually the difference becomes near impossible for the human eye to detect.

    That's the point of it, is that the human eye cannot distinguish the difference between the pixels.

    Nobody said that the device uses 720p as its display resolution, only that it records 720p video. If you watched the Keynote presentation, you can see that when they watch a 720p movie, it doesn't fit the whole screen.
