I use Arora on the Nokia N810 Internet Tablet. The browser works really well -- much 
faster and more responsive than the native, gecko-1.9-alpha-6 based browser. However, in 
order to be fully usable on a touchscreen, finger scrolling is really a must, with kinetic 
finger scrolling being really high on the wish list.

As mentioned above, finger scrolling is available on the native browser ("Microb"). Finger 
scrolling is also somewhat available on Midori and other userscripts.org compliat browsers 
via a userscript (very good performance on 400MHz by the way, but buggy implementation 
-- I won't bother digging up the link because Arora doesn't intend to support userscripts).

Kinetic finger scrolling is available on Tear (a homebrew, open source, webkit/gtk based 
browser. google "maemo tear browser"). It is also available on a closed source QtWebKit 
based browser called Digia@web. Firefox supports it by means of the Grab&Drag 
extension (which works quite nicely) and built into Mozilla's Fennec mobile browser.
