Touchscreen tops iPad, Android tablets

The diagonal measurement of its capacitive touchscreen will be 10.6 inches in a 16-by-9 aspect ratio. This makes the Surface’s screen larger than the iPad’s (9.7 inches) and most Android tablets with large screens (usually 10.1 inches). Microsoft said the resolution will be “HD” while the Surface Pro’s will be “full HD.” Based on official specifications as to what defines HDTV resolutions, this may suggest at least 1280-by-720 (and 1920-by-1080 for the Pro). A resolution of 1366-by-768, the standard minimum nowadays for most brand-new Windows 7 notebooks, would fall into this range.
