    Woohoo portrait is great

    After getting the Motorola portfolio case I haven't been using portrait mode cause its awkward but I took the xoom out the case and its like a new toy again. Really can't wait now case the otterbox case wont be so awkward to use in portrait mode.. did I mention how much easier is it to type in portrait mode? !

    And if that's not worthy of a new thread here's some controversy for all the trolls. Ips screens are crap

    I completely agree with everything I just said

    For me, portrait isn't an option unfortunately, the off-ballance while holding it is causing havoc with my carpeltunnel

    But (here's some controversy too) I found that typing on the Blackberry Playbook works a lot better

    What's an ips screen? Portrait mode rocks. That can't be argued.

    iPad: IPS screen technology explained | Tablets | Macworld

    In-Plane Switching (IPS) is an LCD technology first introduced in 1996 by Hitachi. It was initially developed to correct the poor viewing angles and color problems that LCDs had at the time.
    Due to initial high-costs, IPS adoption was low at first, and mainly found only in high-end monitors, aimed primarliy at the professional sector. Of course, over time, IPS was improved and refined, and as is the case with most new technologies, costs eventually came down to an acceptable level for mass-production.
    The iPad uses it so when you are not holding it wrong,

    you can still look at the white areas of flash websites with the blue question mark in it

    I am happy that the playbook has been released. I'm just not sure that I would've released it like that. However, it has outsold the Xoom on launch day so there must be something to it.
