Even with its controversial design MB has already had success with the W223 S-Class and its tablet style interior with 40k orders at launch (more than the beloved W222 at launch). Every automaker from Volvo to Subaru, Ford, Ram, Porsche, Audi, VW, and even BMW is following their lead and removing buttons and switchgear in favor of "touch-capacitive" buttons and large screens for "uncluttered" interiors. As much as we hate it, luxury is now more synonymous with screens and tech than it is leather, wood and metal.
I can accept that the industry is moving towards touchscreens only, although reluctantly. But to me, it's very clear that horizontal is far better than vertical tablets. Visually/design wise, I think vertical looks good, but in practical terms, horizontal should be the only option as it's much closer to your field of vision.

I think there's a pretty good chance that everything will converge on a single touch surface that spans the entirety of the dashboard, or perhaps in some budget vehicles or dedicated high performance sports cars, just from the driver's side to through the center stack. This could happen as soon as end of decade. So one way or another it's probably all going to end up horizontal.
