How is the Model S browswer recognized by websites --- as a computer, smartphone or tablet? My understanding is that this is important for what content certain websites make available to you and how that information will display. Of immediate concern to me is the New York Times, which has different subscription service for different devices. Currently, I subscribe to the NYT.com + tablet option, meaning I can access the website and read the paper on my IPad. I cannot, however, read the paper on my Galaxy Nexus phone without an upgrade. I think MLB has a similar structure, and I assume that many other websites have split pricing plans. What category of device does the 17" touchscreen fall into? Is there any ability to change the signal that the browser sends to websites (i.e., I am a computer or I am a browser)?
