Will the iPad ever get edge-to-edge smart bezel screen?

    Depending on what you're doing, touch is disabled where the bezel used to be. Just a thought.

    Nope. I've got a Samsung wifi 5.0 media player with a screen that runs nearly to the left and right edges, and It is nearly impossible to hold without unintentionally opening apps whose icons are near the edge.

    toggles the virtual bezel on and off depending on what you want or what app you're using

    Minimal benefit - pretty close to zero, actually. Just a thought

    (Bezels are functional, and not just for holding it - there's a reason why visual art is displayed with a frame or on a monochrome wall - it separates the content from the ground. Given that the iPad is used in all kinds of situations against all kinds of backdrops then it is useful to have the visual demarcation of a bezel. The ability to turn it off offers little.)
