Summary: implement adaptive layout → [tracking] Make the Metro UI layout adapt to different screen sizes/shapes
Bug 797833 has some useful comments about supporting displays with different pixel density. I haven't looked deeply into how Metro apps handle different display densities, but this MSDN article has a good summary. Similar to Android, it looks like Metro has three nominal hardware pixel densities of about 135dpi, 190dpi, and 240dpi. Metro uses a device-pixel::px ratio of 1.0, 1.4, or 1.8 depending on the device: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/b8/archive/2012/03/21/scaling-to-different-screens.aspx
