    Was reading an article on the TB and saw this"

    "I find it hard to believe that it doesn't come with gyroscope technology. My HTC Incredible has gyroscope as well as many other Smartphones, including the iPhone 4."


    First off... is that true?

    2nd... why should I care?

    More accurate than an accelerometer.

    Sent from somewhere...

    Has it been determined whether or not the TB has a gyro or accelerometer yet?

    Current Phone Model:
    Nexus 6P
    When I check the Elixir widget sensor list, it shows

    Accelerometer
    Magnetometer
    Orientation
    Light
    Proximity

    as available. Then it lists

    Gyroscope
    Pressure
    Temperature

    as Not available.

    So it looks like we have an accelerometer and not a gyroscope.
