Better. Thanks

Correct, IEMobile and iOS browsers always report the portrait values.
Chrome mobile fixed that at version 18.


It's been documented by ppk:

Perhaps you could enforce that fix by being even more explicit such as:
"1. If the 'screen.width' is greater than the 'screen.height', return
landscape-primary or landscape-secondary."

The portrait only behavior is error prone, and need to be corrected.
