    I haven't installed 10.3.1 on my passport yet but I'm very curious about the "rectangle mode" which by the looks of it is a 4:3 mode for android apps which I think is officially supported.

    If this 4:3 mode works well for any/all android apps I have a feeling we might be seeing a full touch blackberry passport with a 4:3 inch screen.

    My question is is the rectangle mode really 4:3? Has anyone has problems with android apps in this aspect ratio?

    Currently I'm on PassportSQW100-1/10.3.0.1418. There are some apps which still does not layout very well even with zoom in/out, like instagram for example.

    Not really. There is a mode to make apps look 4:3, it just looks incredibly weird lol.

    Are android apps officially coded to work with 4:3 screens? I'm sure it's not for 1:1.

    I just read that the upcoming nexus 9 will have a 4:3 inch screen. So that answers my question.

    Android apps are in fact written to be optimised for 4:3 screens.
