BB Browser improvements?
Haven't heard anything about progress on RIM/Blackberry improving its native browser. After 13 months of living with my Storm 9530, I'm pretty happy with most everything EXCEPT the slow browser. I'm at a point where I can either upgrade to the 9550 or wait for the next VZW Android superphone...but I want to give the Storm2 a chance since I've come to love the mechanics and feel of my Storm1. Any word on how the browser improvements (webkit?) are going? Have any of the leaked OS's in the 5.00.4xx range shown any improvements to the browser?
The other thing I'd like to see is an improved radio and reception. Typically, I'm about 1 bar short of my wife's LG phone from my home, and we're both on Verizon.
And please don't tell me to try OperaMini or Bolt -- I actually love the way the BB Browser formats webpages with the Column View. Just need it to run faster!
personal feeling only, but...
to me both, speed and radio seem to be improved. If I am in a full 3G area browsing is very smooth and responsive. And at least compared to .402 the signal intensity is much better than before - best of all (compared to .402) battery lasts much longer!
Maybe others can jump in and share their experience/feeling as well?
Your not going to see a large difference in the browser. Blackberry's we made to be email machines, RIM has promised a new browser by the end of next year.
Yeah, the Storm 3 lol

jim balsillie said in his last conference call that "youd be shocked how fast it is". So there definitely something in testing and on the way.
