    Its all in the question really, when im browsing the mobile versions of sites often open but I could do this on my phone.

    The device I had hoped would be to replace the need to open my laptop all the time.

    Is there a way to get it to open full websites by default?

    Thanks.

    In the stock browser, go to settings and un check Mobile view. I most other browsers like xscope (recommended) go to settings and change user agent to "computer".

    it might not be in your version, it is in the newer sold tabs. Your best bet is to use a browser from the market instead.

    I can remcommend:

    • Miren
    • Dolphin HD
    • Firefox
    • Opera Mobile

    My favourite is miren, but you may prefer one of the others.
