Browser Cagematch: BlackBerry, Palm, Windows Mobile Vs. iPhone
InfoWorld pits three reigning Smartphones against the iPhone, comparing the browser experience of each platform. The verdict: Safari wins. Color me shocked.
This was a foregone conclusion. Mobile web browsers are simply crap compared to iPhone. I speak from experience as a Smartphone aficionado, having used every platform under the sun. None of the devices referenced in this article delivers even a remotely comparable experience to Safari.
iPhone includes a real web browser - a desktop web browser. Not the toy browsers you'll find on PalmOS, Blackberry or Windows Mobile, that render webpages through a paper shredder, producing a mangled stack of images and text.
While I won't deny that iPhone has a few shortcomings, web browsing isn't one of them.
