    Bought a little tablet running Android 2.1 and I can't seem to find the back button or arrow anywhere, especially in the web browser. Anyone know where it is? Thanks.

    Yeah, it does have a hardware back button, but that shouldn't be the only solution. Or is it?

    umm yes. Why would you need more than one back button?

    I'm talking about a back button on the touch screen itself. Don't want to press a hardware button every time. I notice older versions of Android had it.

    Download dolphin browser. It supports gestures that can make it go back in the browser.

    Will do, but how do you go backwards in the OS itself?

    So,the only hardware back button is the only solution.
