New RIM Browser LATE 2010?
Different reports are coming in stating RIM will be officially be releasing their new "Webkit" browser by the end of 2010. This differs drastically from the previous report/rumor of mid July. The new browser will bring "iPhone-like" web surfing to the BlackBerry platform, supporting AJAX, CSS, and HTML. However, at this time there is no confirmation of flash.
The first thing this brings to mind is whether it may be too little too late. RIM is already DESPERATELY behind in a consumer driven market with both the OS and the browser. What else will Apple, Google, or even Microsoft bring to the table in another nine months. Another nine months where RIM falls even further behind.
Do you anticipate an earlier release? Do you feel RIM is simply fighting a battle they can't, or won't win? Talk about it with your friends at BlackberryOS!
