I've read somewhere Microsoft said Windows 8.1 will fix the scaling problem on external monitors (they said something like "We are aware blabla").
Perhaps but I just don't see MS putting out a tablet with a default 250% zoom just to be able to read the text. Either MS has to put out a non-competitive resolution or they need more space. They simply cannot do a super HD res on a 10.6 inch tablet running Windows 8. Remember that we are talking close to a year from now.
Anyway it's an interesting problem and I am curious as to how they will address it. There is nothing sacrosanct about 10.6" that it must be preserved at all costs, especially when RT tablets will be going 8".
