First impressions (nothing scientific):
- Web browser is a tad faster, handles some of Google's JS floods better.
- Mail is a little slower but that could be because I added my Yahoo accounts and FB back in.
- First load of an Android app took a long time, or hung, I fnally killed it. After that it was fine
- Messages application on Bridge gets scan line confused when in background, but sorts itself out when brought back to the foreground.
- Screen capture hasn't work yet. One source suggested checking for additional updates after the main one, but checking hasn't shown up any increments.

Browser preferences under "content":
enableReader mode on rotation:
This looks new to me. If my guess is correct, this would automatically switch to reader mode if applicable when I rotate the PB to portrait mode - a very handy feature.
However, it does not work, also, the settings do not persist after closing and opening the browser.
