RIM BlackBerry Webkit Browser
I think I’m in love!
Like most of you already know RIM announced their Webkit Browser in the works as a tease!
This browser is going to deliver more power and efficiency for end users and corporate users alike … more power than Opera Mini or Bolt Browser (my current personal favorite) with the lovely ability of Bookmarks that is supreme to all platforms currently.
These are just some of the reasons I moved back to BlackBerry …
Multi-Threaded Operating System Rich API’s.
Efficient Data Delivery (Just-In-Time).
Cloud-based API’s for Ads/Payment (I’m very happy the ads are minimal if at all present).
Integrated Location Services (RIM is the pioneer in this field allowing this to be extensible to other applications).
Nobody knows how this will be rolled out to existing hardware (9700 was featured), or when this will be available but it looks ready for prime time! My guess is WES2010 this will launch officially.
There’s just so much that can be done with a BlackBerry today and soon in the future that you’d be left in the cold as a developer. BlackBerry incorporates advancing Technology, Art, Design, and Community.
It is nice to see Mike Kirkup presenting RIM’s beta of Webkit Browser using an Apple MacBook … hmm is there direct supporting tools to develop BlackBerry Applications on Mac?! Mike need info please!
I just thought of something after watching so many video presentations and interviews of Mr. Lazaridis and Mr. Balsillie. Has anyone ever seen either of these two in the last 5-7 years with a laptop?! One thing I’d love to interview either of these two entrepreneur genius’ is what do they do with their BlackBerry to conduct their business, meetings, presentations, and personal lives?! I’m sure many of us would get dizzy looking at their Calendar’s alone.
