Wow, really? Do you have a pointer to some info on that? 1080i more or less 
implies both a resolution and a frame rate. I guess you could have "1080i" 
that was 15 fps. I doubt a phone of any sort can output 1920x1080 at any 
frame rate.

I certainly wouldn't consider 480 anything to be "HD". I would consider "HD" 
to mean at least 720P.

I'm starting to see terms like "ED" ("enhanced definition"), which can mean 
anything you want them to mean. I think Netflix "Watch Instantly" is using 
that term.

Such terms will almost certainly become marketing terms and not engineering 
terms, if they haven't already. More or less like "high speed" when talking 
about internet connections.
