I guess the Mini started the thin border phenomena.

Once again it looks like Apple set the standard for all to follow. Now all the 8" tablets are coming out with thin borders on the side just like the Mini. First to copy, the Galaxy of course.

So if you hold that Samsung in landscape, it seems you will always be activating the MENU or RETURN soft touch buttons

I don't think it was the thin bezel craze... Probably more of the 7.9-8" more expensive underpowered not very high PPI craze... Which is actually happening believe it or not

Pretty much. I do it occasionally on my Galaxy S3. I see it happening way more on tablet.
