BlackBerry previews new WebKit browser
RIM co-CEO Mike Laziridis kicked off his keynote speech at the MWC with a preview of the new WebKit based BlackBerry browser. The new browser loads pages quickly and faithfully renders sites so they appear on a BlackBerry screen like they do on a PC. WebKit is the engine used by some of the best browsers in the business like on the iPhone's mobile Safari and the Android's software. RIM had vowed to improve the BlackBerry browser and last  August the company had made an acquisition of Torch Mobile, a company that uses WebKit . The new software supports html5, CSS 3 and DOM L3. There was no word on when the browser would launch, but 'Berry users all over have got to be excited about being able to surf the web with the same capabilities of other world-class devices.
