Microsoft lowers Windows 8 tablet screen requirements to 1024 x 768 pixels

Neowin reports Microsoft is now allowing tablet makers to manufacture cheaper Windows 8 tablets by dropping the minimum display resolution requirement from 1366 x 768 pixels to 1024 x 768 pixels.
A few days ago, it was discovered that the leaked build of Windows Blue actually lowered that app snap view minimum resolution down to 1024x768. As it turns out, Microsoft recently, and quietly, announced that Windows 8 tablets can now be made with a 1024x768 resolution screen, down from the previous requirement of a 1366x768 resolution.

The change was announced on Microsoft's Windows Certification Newsletter earlier in March. In making the change, Microsoft stated that while their were not encouraging PC OEMs to offer a lower resolution for their Windows 8 tablet products, they admitted, "We understand that partners exploring designs for certain markets could find greater design flexibility helpful."
