I would think though, with the newer apps being able to support 16:9 scaling that it would be something that would be great if it were portable across all three platforms. I use a 27" flat screen for my desktop, would truly love to have a large screen smartphone(big hands/fingers) since I rely on sliders for the majority of my input since going stylus-less with these newer items and would think that the Surface would also be a 16:9.

Just as a simple example:
Wouldn't it be nice if I could play Angry Birds on my computer. Then, later while sitting in the living room, pick up my Surface(Intel or ARM) and carry on where I left off. Maybe later, while sitting in the Dr's office waiting on my appointment, pick up my phone and carry on from there. After I get home later in the evening relaxing by picking back up on my large screen desktop.
Just a thought. Not just for game play but pretty much any application/program you would use. Office, Accounting, Email, really pretty much anything you could think of that you would use. With cloud services, I could see it as a place to store the data and then the applications would automatically and seamlessly pull that data no matter what system you are on.
