Implementing horizontal/vertical finger swipe scrolling in android honeycomb webview/webkit?

I am planning to implement Honeycomb tablet application based on WebView (so, basically it'll be a HTML5 web based application made only for tablet).

I am looking to implement horizontal and vertical scrolling by swiping finger. For better understanding I created sample outline.

Horizontal Scrolling by Swiping

This image shows something similar to Honeycomb's native setting activity with left and right page vertically scrollable
Vertical Scrolling by Swiping

Any kind of guides or resources are welcome. Thanks

Take a look at iScroll:

iScroll 4 is a complete rewrite of the original iScroll code. The script development began because mobile webkit (on iPhone, iPad, Android) does not provide a native way to scroll content inside a fixed width/height element. This unfortunate situation prevents any web-app to have a position:absolute header and/or footer and a scrolling central area for contents.

While latest Android revisions are supporting this functionality (although support is not optimal), Apple seems reluctant to add one finger scrolling to divs...
