cellfanatic takes a look at the browsing capabilities of the Android powered Motorola Droid, Symbian fuelled Nokia N97 mini and Maemo 5 super awesomeness that is the Nokia N900.
N97 mini looks strikingly beautiful here.
Anyways. Nick compares features such as:
- screen size
- screen resolution
- screen type (just a note, N900 does have a better resistive screen than N97 mini. It is the smoothest
- pinch to zooming
- rendering/load time
Despite the Droid’s slightly larger (0.2″), slightly higher res (54pix) capacitive screen with pinch n zoom, for browsing, Nick actually awards the N900 the top spot.
“N900 – This is really setting the bar for browsing on a phone – it looks exactly is at looks on the desktop”
I look forward to pinch and zoom on Nokia phones. I like the one handed nature of spiral zoom (can’t really pinch and zoom with one hand) but look forward to the multitouch aspects in both Symbian^3 and MeeGo.
Embedded youtube playback is nice on the N900 but if we could trade off for higher res/smoother playback by running through the media player instead, I’d opt for that instead please
