I don't get why you guys think it's so hard to use it with a thin bezel. When you are using the bezel on the iPhone (while holding it horizontally, there is more than enough room for your thumb on the bezel with room to spare. And yet Apple opted to make the bezel on the ipad much bigger than the bezel on the iPhone. Doesn't make sense. Since the bezel on the iPhone is plenty big enough for your thumbs, why make the iPad bezel so much bigger? I frequently use my iPhone Vertically, and have my thumb resting on the touch screen and it works fine. I just lightly raise up the thumb whenever I'm gesturing but otherwise just have my thumb resting on the screen and the software already handles it perfectly/ignores my thumb. Try it out yourself if you don't believe me. Besides apple can easily code the software so that it knows that thumbs placed at the edge are interpreted as holding the device. No one uses the very edge of the screen to do gestures. Besides you wouldn't be doing gestures, you would have a relatively stable placement of athumb at the very edge. That would be very easy to code for to ignore. So what's the problem with an thin bezel exactly. It would definately make the product far more attractive looking. If you're opposed to touching your olegophobic touch screen on principle or something, just get a thicker case for your iPad. Problem solved.
