    Do you use your device in portrait or landscape most of the time?

    I have mine in a keyboard case, so landscape.

    Same here. I have the ZAGGKeys folio. Nice case I like it.

    When I had a Mini it was landscape because the device was utterly useless in portrait mode. The text was really bad unless it was in landscape mode. All my iPad's are now full size and those are all used in portrait mode.

    Mini - Landscape.

    Mine always stays on Landscape, and seldom on portrait.

    Well, I really want to use portrait, but I have to use landscape a lot due to my eye conditions. Also, I often use a bluetooth keyboard.

    I seldom use my iPad portrait.
    If I had a mini I'd use portrait more often I guess.
    Most of my apps (I mean the one I develop) are landscape only, it's a customer's choice.

    The Mini in landscape provides roughly the same width for content as the Air in portrait - but the Air displays roughly twice as much content when doing so.

    This is one of the main reasons that I disliked the Mini and returned it for an Air.
    I find it too small to be comfortable in portrait mode a lot of the time, and it feels too restricted in landscape mode.

    I have always used my iPads in landscape. Currently have Air and rMini and use both that way. Seems more comfortable and natural that way for me - more like my laptop.

    I prefer portrait mode for both of my iPads, unless I'm doing something that requires landscape, obviously. To me it just seems more comfortable that way. There is more on the screen that way, just smaller, but my eyes are ok, and it feels more like reading a book or magazine.

    Portrait most of the time although the iPad air is the first mobile device I don't hate using in landscape. With tablets I prefer to feel like I'm holding a book or magazine rather than a laptop screen.

    Hard for me to vote as I am almost exactly 50:50! I use portrait mode on my mini for reading books and Safari, but switch to landscape for video.
