There are also small-screen favourites like Tetris and Quadrapop, as well as Bowling and the Breakout-style Bubble Town. Aside from these, you can also download loads of games from SE's PlayNow store – there's a section for motion games, but none yet for gesture recognition.

The NetFront 3.5 web browser is perfectly fine, and easy to navigate with the sensitive, onscreen cursor.
