The new change will allow Windows 8 tablet makers to create hardware with a resolution of 1024x768, with no restrictions. Previously, OEMs had to disclose that a tablet with that resolution could not support Snap View, easily one of the best features of the operating system.
Thanks to a leaked build of Windows Blue, it appears that restriction has been lifted, with Snap View allowing users to run apps side-by-side.
The new changes imply that 7 or 8-inch form factor tablets may be in the works as Microsoft says the move is that "partners exploring designs for certain markets could find greater design flexibility helpful."
