Why the iPad isn’t widescreen: Exhibit A

From Engadget’s JooJoo review:

Our biggest problem with the basic [web browser] viewing is the 16:9 screen ratio, which renders regular sites with extra room on each side in landscape, but crops in on the sides of sites when held vertically. We appreciate that JooJoo is trying to provide a straight pixel-accurate representation of web sites, but they could’ve picked a better screen ratio to do it.
