Sorry Mikey, but if you claim that the amazon website is gesture intensive, then you are "LYING". I have it infront of me now, on my iPhone. A quick double taps fits it to screen perfectly. Far better than any other browser available. Try again dude, maybe you can run down to your local apple store and try to find a website that doesnt look so good and report back here.
You can add this time to you 39+ hours that you claimed to test. Hilarious and pathetic all at the same time.

I never said it did not display well (I actually said the contrary), but rather that it was one examples of the gesture intensiveness of the iPhone (good or bad; some people are fine with it, others are not.)
I never said other browsers do it better (again, I actually said the contrary)
Did that Jornada receipt get lost, or are you ready to apologize? You do it so well for Apple, maybe you could apply it to your own actions.

Now, it is matter of opinion whether it is too gesture intenstive for a person or not.
It is a lie to claim I said something that I did not. But why I am telling you...you already have that skill mastered.

As for the amazon website, if double tapping to fit to the screen almost perfectly is "gesture intensive", than I don't even no what to say anymore. Makes me wonder what your 39+ hours testing the iPhone was wasted on.

i have an iPhone and a Mogul in front of me. when trying to browse on the Mogul i continue to want to "double tap" and "flick" but obviously can't. when i resort to having to use the scroll bars (my finger can barely get to them) and the d-pad i immediately think "how prehistoric" that method is. but hey, that's just me.

(I think you had a different model number (520/540?) and are misremembering, but whatever - a simple clarification (apology?) would suffice, but no, you get all huffy.)
The fact that 9/11 has worked it's way into this thread is amazing...

But to answer your question (which I am taking as just straight questions, unlike your initial repsonse to my straight questions to you on the Mogul):
I prefer the d-pad for going up and down (I'm talking navigation, not implementation; ex. on WM5, the isn't always as smooth as I would like, which forces use of scroll bars. The scroll bars are okay. I wish they were more adjustable (outside of the registry hack). I think Snappermail actually had this interface done well (not web, obviously), but made the distinction between stylus mode and finger mode.
Even on the iPhone, you don't see the whole site (but more than you do on some other devices. I dislike having to gesture around to get where I need to go.
So I prefer the way the iPhone web browser looks, but not the navigation. And I definitely don't like it over EDGE (over wifi is fine).

Please explain how you pinch to zoom with one hand? (unless you iPhone is laying on another surface.)
Please stop saying things are lies when they are soooooo obvious.
Find that Jornada 560 receipt yet?
