What do you think the chances are that an iPad refresh at some point will match its aspect ratio with iPhone/iPod? Maybe it’s just me, but iPad’s boxy screen feels increasingly ancient. And the form factor for iPad already seems basically there.

I doubt it as it seems like many people enjoy using the iPad in “portrait” mode versus “landscape” mode – I know I do. Long tablets tend to be top-heavy and/or awkward to hold as a result of the length. To that end, didn’t we just see Microsoft alter the Surface to be more “boxy”? That said, I wonder if the rumored larger iPad won’t be a slightly different aspect ratio…
