RIM says BlackBerry Browser Will Match Mobile Safari Next Year
I am on my second blackberry and I can tell you what all of you already know...that the BlackBerry's native browser isnt the quickest or the most convinient of browsers.
Well I just got sent an article that makes one think relief might be just around the corner. He is what is said:
The BlackBerry (NSDQ: RIMM)’s native browser is notoriously sluggish and awkward, but according to TD Securities analyst, Chris Umiastowski, RIM says it will be on par with the iPhone’s mobile Safari browser… eventually. Next summer, so they say. This is, of course, presuming RIM means they’ll keep pace with any improvements Apple (NSDQ: AAPL) makes between now and then as well, which is an awfully ambitious goal since there’s already such a gap in browsing quality between the two devices as it is now. I’m prone to think RIM could pull it off if they said they would match the iPhone’s current browsing experience after a year of work…
What do you guys think will happen? Will we actually get flash support in the near future? Or will we have to stick with our third party apps?
