Tablet Screen Size Debacle!
The most popular tablet, currently, is the iPad, of course.
The iPad holds a 9.7 inch display with a bezel for holding, but many critics of the iPad say that it's aspect ratio is terrible for viewing videos and movies on the goregeous display.
Recently announced tablets such as those from ViewSonic, BlackBerry and HP sport a widescreen display, which is great for movie playback.
The problem is that people arent sure themselves about what they will do with their tablet device. Will said person always only watch movies, or will said person be browsing the internet or creating documents?
I side with Apple on the display size argument, only because the 16:9 aspect ratio does not feel right in the hands, and its bad for everyday tasks on a tablet such as typing, surfing the web and playing games.
