The HTML 5 Test Shoot-Out

Wondering just how well your browser stacks up when it comes to HTML5 compatibility? We were, so we took a number of devices (both desktop and mobile) and sent them off to html5test.com to see how they performed.

Full disclosure; I realize that we really didn't give IE a fair shake here.. IE9 is about to be launched and should firm up the numbers and we didn't have a copy of the beta - though we've not heard great things.

Also the Blackberry score is from Blackberry 6 (not released yet) so take it with a massive grain of salt.

Consumer Reports Can't Recommend the iPhone 4

Apple's iPhone 4 was just dealt a fairly significant blow, from a PR perspective anyway, as it's iPhone 4 can't be recommended by the leading consumer advice group. Consumer Reports does rate the other (read: non-phone) aspects of the device higher than any of its competitors, but was able to replicate the pesky antenna issue and thus directs users to the outdated iPhone 3GS if they want to make calls in an area of questionable AT&T coverage and don't wish to employ a bumper case of stick a bit of tape on the side.

As just about everyone knows, Apple is working on a software patch which will help the iPhone to correctly display signal bars but hasn't confirmed the antenna issue as a hardware design flaw.

 
 

BlackBerry OS 6 Arrives in Video Form

Just when you thought Blackberry, with it's meager first place 41.7% market share, may have taken a back seat to iPhone and Android, they've released a new UI concept video. It's looking good, but is it really playing in the same league as Android, Palm and iOS?

iPhone 4 Camera Put To The Test

Macworld just did a pretty exhaustive comparison of the iPhone4's new 5-megapixel camera and the rest of the latest super phones including the DroidX and EVO 4G. It's a pretty comprehensive run-down and features photographic evidence in addition to opinion. (The shot above, for example, is the EVO 4G's 8-megapixel camera to the left and the iPhone4 to the right).

"The iPhone 4 had, by a healthy margin, the best exposure and color scores of the entire bunch, beating out even the point-and-shoot cameras."

The quote that really summarizes things is simply: "We're not going to beat around the bush -- in our approximation, the iPhone 4 is the best smartphone on the market right now."

AllThingsD - Loved the phone, not so keen on AT&T...

 
 

iPhone4 Orders Officially Arriving Early?

If you're waiting for an iPhone4 to arrive... your wait may be shortened by a day or so.. I just got this email (I pre-ordered the iPhone on the 15th).. it appears that the iPhone may be arriving a full day early.. despite what FedEx says. 

It's definitely not earth-shaking.. but it's decidedly non-Apple, isn't it?!
