Google’s Pixel C has a smart aspect ratio, but what about the stylus?

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:

  1. It makes websites and webapps more “appealing”.
  2. 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.
