Not really for the hell of it
Apple's retina is 2048x1536 = 1024x768 doubled (original iPad)
Nexus 10 retina is 2560x1600 = 1280x800 doubled (Nexus 7 resolution + fairly common on other Android tablets)

I read it as "in a bid to reduce the number of (types of) phone power supplies in circulation and thus minimise the number of them ending up in landfill...."
If your new phone works with old charger you're more likely to keep and use it in some way and less likely to throw it in landfill.
Though didn't Apple lead the way on this by not including AC adapters with iThings?
Nexus 7 8GB - £159
iPod Touch 8GB - £169
Nexus 7 16GB - £199

Am considering it for much the same reason - better video experience than a phone screen, without the 10" size/cost. Lack of SD card the main drawback but how many movies can you watch in one flight?
If I recall correctly, the buses aren't wired up to the live system, and only download the usage when they return to depot. Doing it all real-time wouldn't be reliable or fast enough (even at stations the second saved compared to reading a paper ticket significantly increases throughput)
