    Screen Orientation Issues

    I bought this case, and some of you might know to be able to use it slightly tilted for easier typing, the device has to be upside down(front facing cam on the bottom), which isn't an issue because its still landscape and easy to type, but the device does not work nearly as well as if it were right side up(front facing cam on top). Maybe a few on you could tip yours upside down and scroll through your home screens and app drawers and see if it does the same for you? I really like the case, its really heavy duty and just flat out nice, but the lag and the way the device runs when upside down is somewhat of an issue. Why could this be? Why would it run differently when upside down?

    I have the same issue with my Canadian WiFi Xoom, and I have no idea how to "fix" it. When it's upside down in the leather portfolio case I bought, scrolling is much slower and choppier than when I hold it in the "right" orientation.

    Transition animations (scrolling, swiping between homescreens, etc.) are noticeably less smooth when my device is upside down, and the overall experience just feels laggier.

    I have a Xoom WiFi (US).

    I have an Acer Iconia and notice that home screen scrolling is not as smooth in any orientation other than the standard one. Must be a honeycomb issue :-/

    Is there anyone who isn't experiencing this? It would help to know if this is a 3.0 issue or just my tablet.

    In short the issue is when the tablet is oriented in any way other than "right side up" there is noticeable lag when flipping through home screens and scrolling through the browser, widgers, other apps, etc
