Thanks a lot for responses, specifically the HIG doc.
Still couple of things:
a. In the HIG we talk about fixed size of tables with internal table scrolling/ paging. Are you sure that it is implemented like this?
b. Ability to view full range of content groups on screen. Again, I don't think its implemented like this.
Bigger thing, #b, if there are more content groups then they may not fit the screen. Any alternative way for this?
Also, what about TabbedTableView and TableTab example and pagination in tables?
