- Browse the web with Google engine as an a starting point

How to use it:

How to type a message? There are four ways available:
- Use the device keyboard
- Use the voice recognition system with up to 10 possible interpretations to select from (may require Internet).
- Use the touchscreen and slide up and down through characters and symbols and slide right to input the selected character.
- Use the traditional software keyboard with TalkBack activated.

How to manage a call:
- Slide up to answer the call
- Slide down to end the call
