    I know I know this is going to sound very silly and weird. I love my q10 but I think I'd like the option to have the screen rotate when I'm watching videos or stream on the browser. Solely for the reason that it's easier to hold the device in landscape mode when watching them. Anyone else thing like me?

    I know that but if you had read my post it's mainly to make it easier to hold the device when I'm watching video and streaming. It's more comfortable to hold it in landscape mode then portrait mode watching video (well for me anyway).

    it would make a lot of sense to be able to rotate content. in fact i think that the device has an accelerometer, so it should be possible somehow

    I think there are WAY more important features/improvements that they should spend their development resources on than to make a square screen rotate.

    Well I think ti would also be handy when you're doing presentations over HDMI. again it's easier to hold the device in landscape mode and swipe through slides then in portrat mode.

    I dont think it would require much development at all (as has been said it's a square screen 720x720 so what would change in rotation).

    If the screen were able to rotate playing Angry Birds and other games would be easier.

    Would it?

    Having thought this issue over since the launch of the Q10, I can honestly see no benefit in day to day life having a rotating screen.
    But for those that want it, I hope you get it soon.

    its horizontal when you dock it but the alarm clock stays vertical - weird!!! what if you have an alarm or messages come up on the screen you have to rotate your head - what if you cant rotate your head? haha

    They did it finally (well with the passport). It's very comfortable to scroll this way too.
