User Reviews 3 I found that browsing is smooth, accelerometer works, but a bit flaky. Scrolling is easy, no pinch to zoom, but double-tap works. Calibrating the screen helps with typing frustration in vertical mode. Gaming is decent; accelerometer is responsive. No built-in speaker, but you can use headphones.
