Browser speed comparison - N86, N97, iPhone 3G, T-Mobile G1 and more

Browser speed comparison
It is important to realise all these tests offer the best case scenario. To get similar results, you'll need to be running over a high quality WiFi or HSDPA connection. The real world reality is, of course, often very different. Nonetheless, these do offer a useful insight into browser performance.

They key take away from these article is that version 7.1 of the S60 browser is a major step forward in performance and rendering terms. It is faster than the iPhone 3G and T-Mobile G1. It is likely in roughly the same league as the iPhone 3GS and Palm Pre (despite the Nokias running on lower-resourced, previous generation, hardware).

The improvement is most apparent on non-touch devices (after all, the touch devices never had the 'old' browser). Despite being released just a few months apart, the E75 and N86 have very different browser performance because they have different versions of the browser. Given the size of the improvement over the previous versions of the S60 browser (comparable to, or even greater than, iPhone 3G to 3GS) it is surprising it has receieved relatively little comment or publicity.

S60 5th Edition has version 7.1 of the S60 browser as a standard component, hence it ships with the Nokia 5800, Nokia N97, Nokia 5530, and Samsung i8910. For S60 3rd Edition, version 7.1 of the browser currently ships with the the Nokia N86. The new browser will likely ship in forthcoming S60 3.2 devices, and earlier devices may receieve the browser update via a firmware update.

I seldom write coemtnms, but i did some searching and wound up here Fancy a new Ps3 and playstation move? | mobiles with free ps3. And I do have 2 questions for you if you don't mind. Is it only me or does it look as if like some of these responses look like left by brain dead folks? And, if you are posting at other sites, I'd like to keep up with everything new you have to post. Could you make a list of every one of all your shared pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

Thanks for these pointers. One thing I suhold also believe is always that credit cards supplying a 0% interest rate often lure consumers along with zero interest, instant authorization and easy on the net balance transfers, but beware of the real factor that will probably void your 0% easy streets annual percentage rate and throw anybody out into the very poor house fast. http://zvqjzgg.com [url=http://bitylcdyas.com]bitylcdyas[/url] [link=http://gnsbiv.com]gnsbiv[/link]
