One of the things I was really looking forward to with BlackBerry 10 was the browser that wiped the floor with the competition. BlackBerry really delivered and it allowed me to redo the BerryReview mobile site with a gorgeous HTML5 overhaul. The most common reaction I get when showing it to people is “I cannot believe that isn’t an app!” We have packed in quite a few features in this beta and I really hope you enjoy it. There is also some new sever side magic going on all the pages on BerryReview that much faster.
The new BerryReview mobile site is available now for BlackBerry 10 devices including the Dev Alpha so feel free to check it out and give us your feedback during the beta. The focus for the redesign was on speed and functionality while pushing the envelope with the groundwork laid by jansimecek. There are small touches all around including a sliding sidebar menu, ajax page loading, and a gorgeous mobile lightbox photo viewer. There is definitely more updates coming so stay tuned and please please send in your feedback!
Current & Future plans: The new BerryReview Mobile site is enabled for BlackBerry 10 devices and based on beta user feedback we have also turned it on for iPhone
and Android phones. (Android has some issues) I am still testing a tweaked mobile site for the larger PlayBook screen size but I am on the fence on if it should just get the desktop site. We are also testing the new redesign on some legacy BlackBerry devices to see if it makes sense and the performance is there but the older mobile site offers the same functionality at a speed that is hard to match. We also have to make it work for both touch and click events.
