    Blackberry Browser on Storm 2 on WIFI


    This is a video of a Storm 2 using the Blackberry Browser connected via WIFI. It is FAST!!! It seems like it takes a moment to request the page but once it does, then the page loads very quickly. The WIFI seems faster then 3G! Hope you guys enjoy this! After seeing how quickly the WIFI is with the native browser that it definitely makes me want one! What do you guys think?

    I found that to be a pretty poor video. Who cares how things load in mobile. I compared his load time to mine over 3G in some cases mine loaded faster. What would have been interesting is to see how non-mobile pages loaded. Overall, that was pretty uninformative.

    It is not know yet. BBM 5 still has quite a few bugs and last I heard no decision has been made to include it or not. We will find out more over the next few weeks.

    True, Josh...plus that m.yahoo.com took quite a long time to load

    Exactly my thought... 4 mins worth of video, and not one full site tested.

    Thumbs down Not very impressed...

    My Storm 1 loads just as fast on those sites on 3g..and even faster with Opera Mini 5...
    Personally I think BB just needs a new browser. Maybe in a year or two that mobile browser company they bought will produce a decent browswer. But for now I will stick with Opera mini..it loads a full site in 20 seconds compared to the native BB browser which takes 2 mins...

    You can't really compare the native browser to Opera Mini or Bolt. The Bb Browser is optimized for mobile sites and the 2 3rd party browsers compress the data and that is why they load so fast. I strongly believe however that the next generation of BB browser will also do the same type of things and it will only get better

    I have to agree with jlevy, who cares how fast mobile sites load, show us a full html page.

    I agree with you all. If he wants to show me massive improvements in browser speed; show me Javascript-heavy non-mobile sites. Mobile sites generally load quickly on the lowest-end phones on slow networks.

    +1. If anything, it showed that you don't need wifi.

    So basically unless you have to have the new touchscreen tech, stick with storm 1. I think I'm going to hold out for a phone that is compatible with Verizon's upcoming lte network.

    this is funny when he hit espn.com i did it at the same time on 3g 9530/5.0.230 and mine loaded quicker then his. now how can u explain this. all my images loaded to quicker then this. i wounder whats his browser options r. if u turn off java support ur phone can be this fast trust me. i bet his crackberry or bbos full site doesnt go as fast as mine. i dont no im just speaking my mind on this. i love the storm two, its just this hype over wifi speeds isnt impressing me at all.

    Do you have any documentation to back up your "OPINION" If not, please keep you negative "OPINION" to yourself.
