We have mentioned RIM’s dedication to HTML5 previously but the results are really starting to shine in BlackBerry 10. I have been using the BlackBerry 10 Alpha browser along with the new PlayBook beta browser and from a web developers perspective they are becoming ideal environments for apps. David pointed out to us that HTML5Test.com has updated their result set to include BlackBerry 10 beta tests and the results are very impressive.
The original PlayBook OS 1.0 scored 285+9 bonus points followed by PlayBook OS 2.0 which is the current tablet leader at 373+9. Now the development and beta category is also dominated by RIM with PlayBook OS 2.1 scoring 393+10 and BlackBerry 10 scoring a whopping 447+10. Just to give you an idea that means BlackBerry 10 tops all current, development, or beta browsers for HTML5. Check out the full smartphone and tablet rankings for yourself.
Not to shabby for the company that used to be known for its Low-Fi mobile browsing experience… Kudos to the Torch team. We cannot wait to see what you have in store for the browser chrome redesign in BlackBerry 10.
