Hey,

I wanted to know which dimension of a tablet device is considered as its width, the longer one or the shorter one?

That's probably partly personal preference, but commonly a tablet is considered a portrait device - so the height would be the larger number.

That is exactly my point. If I write-



Which dimension will I get, the longer one or the shorter one?

Isn't it easier to run that code and see for yourself?

Maneesh,

I don't have a physical tablet and when I tried to run it on an emulator, the emulator itself was giving errors, probably due to some problems in the emulator itself but, anyway.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
