    Because it's not only a video player. the aspect ratio makes it more natural, imo, for reading books, working on documents, viewing/editing photos (which are generally not in 16:9), etc.

    I don't know about that ! A4 has a ratio of 1.41, and my newspapers fit perfectly on 16:9. Photos on SLR's are 1.5 aspect ratio. Books don't matter, because they fit to whatever you use (Kindle, etc).

    IMHO Apple got it wrong, 16:9 is better for the general stuff too !!!

    Just my opinion !

    Apple have pretty much blocked all methods of file transfer, that is why the iPad does not have a USB port, microSD card slot, etc.

    This is part of the whole Apple philosophy, so it is not going to change - but with SJ gone you never know - but not yet, this would have been designed while he was still alive.

    Of course, it is this philosophy that makes Apple useless to me - I wouldn't buy an iPad 3 for R1000, what would I do with it ?

    Have to disagree. I think the 4:3 works way better in portrait, 16:9 is too skinny. The iPad actually has a larger screen in area than the 10.1" diagonal tablets.

    We will have to agree to disagree ! IMO the 16:9 screens work better for everything.

    Not sure how you can disagree, I have just quoted you examples of stuff that doesn't work on 1.33 aspect ratio, like A4, newspapers, photos, videos. What more do you want ?

    Key issue is when will these puppies appear on the SA shelves? I've been holding off on getting the 2 so need to get my hands on the 3 asap.

    55+ million iPads sold since 2010 and Apple is wrong on screen aspect ratio?

    How many 16:9 tables sold in compassion?

    I have played with 16:9 tablet and it's uncomfortable, it's like reading on over-sized envelope. Never mind portrait postilion.

    I want tablet not an envelope sized gadget!

    16:9 and 4:3 are Hollywood invention.
    16:9 may be good for movies, but not good form factor for tablets. 4:3 is right and Apple nailed it while others don't.

    I'm hardly an apple fanboy but I think that's a ridiculous comment. Most people would take that kind of tablet for R1000 or even R2000. The file transfer thing is annoying but its hardly a showstopper... plenty of ways to move files on to the iPad.

    What would you do with it ? I don't know hey... what wouldn't you do because most people I know can't tare them selves away from them

    OK, maybe I will pay R2000 (max), but then I will still use it as a gift - couldn't use it myself.

    Just did a quick and nasty between the ipad and Galaxy Tab 10.1 for my most common aspect ratios and imo one isnt significantly better than the other - on the ipad you get vertical black bands, on the tab they're horizontal.

    iPad


    Tab (16:10)


    So that's how I'd disagree.
