    OK so basically, I have just got my iPhone 4 today and I've run in to something strange.

    On my old second gen iPod Touch running 4.0 I have a folder called "Network Tools" and on the springboard it's full name is shown.
    But when I when created a folder with the same name on the iPhone 4 on the springboard the name is shown as "Netwo...Tools".

    I have synced the iPhone with a backup of the iPod so they have the same settings.

    Anyone else noticed something similar? Why doesn't the iPhone allow as long folder names? Seems strange...

    I've had the same issue before but what I tried was after making the folder, I'd make the folder wiggle, open it to edit the title, try to delete any spaces after the word and press the home button. In most cases, it worked and the longer name was displayed properly. I think what happens is iOS suggests the folder name/suggests words as you type and you end up using that along with the space that you pressed as you accepted the suggestion. Hope this helps

    So why would a higher resolution screen with more area limit the number of letters compared to a lower resolution screen with less space?

    Because to show the text more sharper. If it were tiny and squished up then it wouldn't be very, 'High Res' would it?

    Well, it would still be "high res" but it would look different because the words are squashed. It's like taking a sandwich and punching it down. It's still a sandwich, just shaped differently.
