BlackBerry PlayBook vs iPad Web Browsing (video)

Research in Motion’s put together a video demo of the BlackBerry PlayBook’s web browser and how it stacks up against the iPad’s. Pages appear to load significantly faster on the BlackBerry PlayBook and of course you can run Flash on it, while iPad’s Safari experience is a Flash-free zone.


Javascript animations appear quite a bit smoother on the BlackBerry PlayBook and of course you don’t have to worry about busted web pages like you do with the iPad.

The BlackBerry PlayBook looks like a promising device, but I still question the positioning of it. Virtually every demo and keynote we’ve seen about the PlayBook focuses on its ‘fun’ parts. It’ll be very interesting to see if the PlayBook can get down to business when it’s finally released next year.
