It's nice to see that LED backlight is now available for both the ThinkPad T400 and T500.
However the T400/T500 Notebook Specifications indicate the following resolutions for the LED backlit screens:
T400 WXGA+ 1680 x 1050 129 dpi 200+ nit
T500 WXGA 1280 x 800 98 dpi 185+ nit
I'm wondering why the larger screen has the lower resolution, and also why illumination is not as good.
Are these specs correct?

Yes, it's nice to see the LED backlight option available for the T500 model. I had hoped for higher resolution to match what I have on my 15" Macbook Pro at 1440x900 and it was a concern for me when I was trying to decide on which option for the screen to go with my T500.
I thought I might regret my choice but after receiving my T500 I'm extremely happy with the LED backlight option even it's resolution is a little lower.
If one decides to place the the higher resolution screen on the Macbook Pro beside the T500 you'll probably notice the slight difference in resolution with the text and windows. But in real life I don't think you'll spend time with your head inches away from the screen studying the pixel difference.
Even thought the LED WXGA screen on the T500 is only 1280 x 800 I'm very happy with it.
