Video: Nokia N900 vs Motorola Droid vs Nokia N97 mini – Browser War.

| April 24, 2010 | Reply

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. :P

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
  • scrolling
  • 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

    Very nice post Nokia N97 Mini is the best mobile in its segment and much better in comparison to its rivals. Planning to buy it soon.
