Anybody who has ever used a BlackBerry will know that the Browser capabilities and speed has never been a strong point, especially when compared to the competition. This of course is frustrating and can really hinder you from being able to effectively use many web based applications. The browser functionality on top of other things have been one of the major complaints of the BlackBerry OS and this issue with the browser was even seen in the first release of the first PlayBook OS 1.0 software.
Research In Motion recently released the BlackBerry PlayBook 2.0 software which boasts complete upgrades and enhancements to the browser application and it’s ability to run even the most complex web based apps. Just today I came across a video that shows a BlackBerry PlayBook with OS 1.0 and a BlackBerry PlayBook running OS 2.0 doing web based testing to show the difference in the speeds of the browser app.
Here is the video, the results are really quite remarkable and will definitely help to increase the possibility of consumers taking a serious look into getting the BlackBerry PlayBook.
As you can see there is a significant difference in the speed and fluidity of the BlackBerry PlayBook 2.0 browser, which means that all of the web apps you download and use will act and behave the way they were designed instead of being slowed down by an incapable and slow browser. It looks like BlackBerry may have just come out with an update that may help to keep them in and give them a small boost in the very competitive tablet market.
