apparently it is locked in landscape mode for tablets (not a good idea IMO)

edit: welp, I guess it's time to install [url="https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=nl.fameit.rotate&feature=search_result#?t=W251bGwsMSwxLDEsIm5sLmZhbWVpdC5yb3RhdGUiXQ.."]Ultimate Rotation Control[/url] until MS decides to change that
