RIM pits Playbook against iPad in browser showdown video

RIM just let us know that they have put together a three minute video pitting the unreleased and unfinished Playbook tablet against Apple’s iPad. The Canadian tech giant boasts of its device’s superior web-page rendering speed, super Flash performance, a perfect score on the Acid 3 browser test with no rendering artifacts, and JavaScript fluidity. But hey, don’t listen to us break it out, check out the full video after the break and let us know what you think. Our quick feedback? It’s mighty impressive. Though we have to wonder, by the time the Playbook is released, there will most likely be an iPad 2 out, and we know Apple isn’t just going to sit still.

Windows Phone 7 browsing experience gets video walkthrough

It looks like the chaps over at PocketNow got their hands on the LG GW910 complete with Windows Phone 7. The device, which recently crossed the FCC’s desk, is a full-QWERTY slider that we don’t really know all that many details about. The PocketNow gang didn’t shed any additional light on the handsets spec sheet, although they did take the time to shoot a 10-minute video detailing and comparing what the browser experience will be like on a WP7 device. The video notes (several times) that the hardware and software on the GW910 is not final, but you can get a general feel of what Internet Explorer mobile will look and feel like. If you’re considering a Windows Phone 7 handset upon launch — or if you want to mindlessly flame on another handset, showing everyone just how big of a tool you actually are — hit the jump… we have the video all ready for you.
