If the sensor is 13.2x8.8mm, how is it a 25.4mm sensor?

So a sensor with dimensions of 13.2mmx8.8mm and a diagonal of 15.8mm is described as.....a one inch, 25.4mm sensor Tongue

As the page you give the link to (thanks) says, this was basically to pull the wool over they eyes of the punters who might not buy it since if they were given the true size of the sensor.

Sad to see Hasselblad, previously a supplier of top quality photographic equipment resorting to such ploys. In the past they sold on the undeniable quality of their products. In the digital age, they need obsuscation to stake their claim. How the mighty are fallen.

Fabulous link Josh. I hadn't realised camera manufacturers had been pulling the wool over our eyes for so long. Still I guess its all relative up to a point - my question is - how does this cameras sensor compare to other compacts? To be honest its a non issue - because regardless of the answer I won't be buying!
