Aspect ratio

The Surface RT screen has a 16:9 aspect ratio, like an HD TV, which is a departure from some popular tablets such as the iPad, whose aspect ratio is 3:4. This makes it somehow intuitive to grab the device by the ends and manipulate the screen with your thumbs. With the charms bar swipeable from the right and the active applications swipeable from the left, it’s very convenient for thumb operation.
