I'm all for optimizing landscape, but I'd still want portrait to be usable.

Yeah, they have tablet stausbar but unfortunately it is not tablet ui. Settings menu for example is still single pane and the stock launcher is still portrait only. It's a step in the right direction but, imo, it could be better with FULL tablet ui.

It isn't unheard of for Market App incompatibilities to arise after you change the screen DPI.

How well does the keyboard work with this change? Typically the stock keyboard gets screwy in different modes.

You just took the words right out of my mouth. I was just going to post a question about how this worked with alternate keyboards like SwiftKey and Thumb Keyboard. Specifically since SwiftKey has different versions on the market for phones and tablets.

tablet ui doesn't change the keyboard...if you're familiar with how it works on the larger tablets it's the same deal...

from personal experience shiftkey phone, on a tablet, isn't great in landscape unless you have ginormously long fingers..i've been too cheap to buy the tablet version at $3.99 because they discount it to $1.99 all the time...

All this is the combined status bar, this will NOT enable dual pane mode but thats my next project after I get a linero from out

Full tablet(dual pane) is ultimately what I want running on my N7 but this is definitely a step in the right direction and I appreciate the work everyone is putting into it.
