Tabbed Browsing a feature of BlackBerry OS 5.0?
RIM has been working hard on getting the BlackBerry browser to match the functionality of the browsers on competitors handsets. One thing that the top of the class versions have is tabbed browsing, and apparently RIM has included this on the BlackBerry 5.0 OS. the guys at BGR were playing around with a beta copy of the OS when they stumbled across this function for the BlackBerry browser.

Calling up a new tab seems simple enough as clicking on Menu, Tabs and then New Tabs. One complaint that the BGR fellows had was that switcing back and forth amongst the tabs was a little bit of a hardship, but we suppose that this is something that RIM could fix in time for launch. And with RIM trying to catch up to mobile Safari, the webOS browser and Opera Mobile 9.5, why not strive to overtake them and add some support for flash?

Meh, luckily I didn't wait for Storm 2 because I didn't know RIM phones didn't have tab browsing.
