BlackBerry 7 OS to Have Fastest Mobile Browser

The mobile Browser wars are heating up and the latest contender for the title of ‘Speediest Mobile Browser’ is BlackBerry’s 7 OS. RIM seems quite sure that even with competitors like iPhone’s Safari or Google’s Android native browser, the new 7 OS’ will be the one to beat. One report showcased a slide from the recently held BlackBerry World event that simply said that the new OS from RIM would feature ‘one of the elite browsers in mobile today’.

The new Operating System’s browser will have the capability to load pages 1.6 times faster than its previous version and that’s nothing to sneeze at. They tested the browser using the JavaScript benchmark test called SunSpider which was able to show a webpage pop open in just 2.84 seconds. Quite remarkable. When compared to the iPhone's browser the 9900 fared really well as the iPhone's came in at 3.23 seconds and Android devices like the Nexus S and Nexus One showed a time of over 5 seconds.

The 9900 was the device tested here and that means it’s a device that we’ve got to keep our eyes on.
