So you won't have to drag your page to the left and to the right, you see it all, you read it all. Sure, you will need to scroll up and down. Just like on your computer. The Archos Internet Media Tablets do just that. They let you surf like no other mobile device. The Archos 5g does even better. Not only do you have an uncompromised web experience, but you can have it all-day, everyday. Surfing the web is completely seamless.
