BlackBerry browser battle: New WebKit version vs. old modelThis article contains unofficial information.
Lately, RIM has been listening to their customers. A new finger-friendly OS is on the way and the upcoming BlackBerry 9800 looks to be the heaven-sent answer for those who wanted a touchscreen like the Storm, but with a physical QWERTY keyboard as good as the one on the Bold 9000. Now, RIM has even listened to the complaints about the browser and for those who wanted one based on the WebKit engine, you will have it. We have shown you some videos of the new web browser in action and today, we have one that compares the outgoing software with the incoming one. And to make it even sweeter, the new browser is running on the 9800 slider.
So, BlackBerry fans, you will soon have a browser that appears to be right up there with the other WebKit based mobile web browsers like mobile Safari and the stock software on Android and webOS devices. Anything else you 'Berry fans want from RIM? Best to speak up now while they are in a listening mood.
