The iPhone 3G and the Blackberry Bold will certainly be pitted against each other in the days to come, so when we saw a so-called Browser battle between the two, we promptly grabbed our popcorn and got ready to watch the rumble...

...Only to find out it was an original iPhone 2G vs. what looks like a pre-release, buggy-ROM'd, poorly connected Bold. Talk about going from showdown to letdown!

Fellas, it shouldn't take Joe Silva to tell you what makes for good fights: top competitors in top shape. Take one or both, tranq them up, tie their arm (processors) behind their backs, and kidnap their girlfriends and you don't have a real fight (though you could have yet another Nicolas Cage movie...)

The Bold debuts in North America this week on Rogers. Seems that very same provider already has the iPhone 3G. So here's an idea: set them both up, in full release form, on the same network, under the same conditions, and then let's get it on!
