The guys at All About Symbian went all out to pitch the browsers on a number of competing mobile phone platforms represented by the following devices:
- iPhone 3G
- T-Mobile G1
In general the Nokia devices with version 7.1 of the S60 browser out-performed the iPhone 3G and T-Mobile G1. The iPhone and G1 had similar results (with the exception of guardian.co.uk), although the iPhone 3G just edges it.
Unbelievable? Certainly interesting. Nokia seems to have done a good job optimising the latest version of their browser. Shame the E75 missed it!
