A pity it's not 16:10, which is the ideal aspect ratio all things considered.

I personally prefer 4:3 which suitable on both portraits and landscape...

whereas 16:10, it looks awkward when put it vertical on 10 inch and weird when horizontal on 7inch, maybe that just me...

You can adjust any text to 10:16 which is ideal for browsing, e-book reading etc., or 16:10 if you prefer that ratio, but you can't really adjust 16:9 or ultra-widescreen video to 4:3 unless you cut out half the source. At the top-end, these gadgets are multimedia machines, and I don't like the idea of giving 600 bucks away for something I can't enjoy a good video on.

A good video is on 16:9 ratio especially on 720p screen, but lumia920 also not bad tho... Consider it's fatter than others lol :p

I have an ipad 2 and wouldn't change it for any tablet in that price range offcourse.The best app selection,simple intuitive UI the whole family can use it,just to tell that i didn't have reboots or system crashes,not once.I have my xperia p to satisfy my tech need while the ipad is a great companion for the entire family and a gaming console.
