    Every tablet I've seen has automatic orientation detection to switch between landscape and portrait mode, but I'm not sure how to disable able it, or if it can be done. If I happen to be laying down and want landscape mode that would be a problem.
    I am mentioning this before buying.

    [h=4]Step 1[/h]Tap the “Menu” button on your Android device; then touch “Settings.”

    [h=4]Step 2[/h]Tap “Display.”

    [h=4]Step 3[/h]Touch “Auto-Rotate Screen” to check the check box and allow the screen to change orientation as you turn it. Tap “Auto-Rotate Screen” again to un-check the check box and lock the phone in portrait mode.
    hope this helps:)
