re: 8 Cool Windows 8 Tablets
Judging by the pictures it looks like they all sport a 16:9 aspect screen. Surely this is not a limitation which the hardware manufacturers are restricted to? I take my aspect ratio far too serious to be limited to widescreen only. You would have thought that when Microsoft was analyzing and trying to understand why the iPad had been successful when nothing before had made any type of dent, that the size of the screen would have been seriously considered. Let's only hope all the 16:9 screens offered now are only coincidental and a good 4:3 will hit the market soon.

As Microsoft unveiled their latest offering, Apple also unveiled the iPad's little brother. And guess what? Apple got it right once again and offered a good 4:3 screen on the little guy instead of the 7" widescreens which most of the lesser tablets offer. (Yep, there's been a slew of them appear in the sub-$100 category recently.)

re: 8 Cool Windows 8 Tablets
