The aspect ratio on Google’s new tablet is the square root of two. Why?
Brian Barrett gives us an explanation of the weird aspect ratio ( 1:√2, about 1:1.41) on the new Google Pixel C Tablet. The explanation is divided in two:
- It makes websites and webapps more “appealing”.
- If you divide the Pixel C’s screen in two, you get the same exact aspect ratio over and over again. Useful for spliting screens/windows
Smart move to differenciate these tablets from the ones other makers are producing, but still, one big thing is missing from Google’s proposal: the stylus.
