Browser battle on video: BlackBerry Storm 2 vs. BlackBerry Onyx
We have discovered a video that shows two upcoming BlackBerry models squaring off in a competition. The touchscreen BlackBerry 2 and the Onyx/Bold 9700 match browsers. Both are using Wi-Fi and both are loading the same site. The winner? You will have to view the video to see, but we will tell you that the losing device is running an older OS build which is a handicap. The ultimate winner is all of the BlackBerry fans who will be getting their hands on either one of these handsets.

What people are neglecting to realize....these phones arent active and the WiFi is based probably off the users local internet provider not the phones 3G.

i think i know why its so slow? well, does lagg count for this? if someone is using wifi, i sometimes get lagged when i am using it to, so basiclly onyx lagg storm 2? also, the os might be a cuase for this, really early os. the screen is bigger, so it might take more time to load, and lasty, maybe his wifi is super slow? im not sure how wifi can be slow, but cant hurt to guess.

And people complain about phones not having WiFi, because........??? This is horrible. I actually typed this entire post by the time it all loaded. Geez, I guess WiFi doesn't mean a hill of beans if the OS isn't up to snuff.
