Are they scaling up the standard WP size 200% vertical & horizontal as well? Are we looking at 1600x960, not 1920x1080?

uh? 1920x1080 its the standard in the surface right now

The Surface Pro is, yes. And the Surface is 16:9 as well (1366 x 768). I was referring to phones though. They currently use a 16:10 aspect, either 800x480 or 1280x768. I wonder what they'll use in the next generation.

This is great and all, but I'm not looking forward to all of the WP fanboys trolling all of the tech sites again when this is released.
