 Lol.  On my netbook I use my 12x22 font in a tty to read mail on my
server -  gmail is a _struggle_, the screen is too small, I can't
imagine using a tablet for it : on my phone, I get incoming gmail,
but only whatever falls into my inbox, and replies apparently go out
as html - having said that, I can pull things out one the phone with
a gesture (spread thumb and forefinger), doesn't that work on your
tablet ?
