An independant research was conducted by Blaze where they tested the browsing speed capabilities and differences between Apple’s iOS and Google’s Android OS. Both testing was done specifically with iOS 4.2 and 4.3, as well as Android 2.2 and 2.3 respectively, so they got the 2 latest versions of the software pitted against each other. The results are a little staggering actually, as Android came out on top on most sites, both mobile versions and regular webpages, beating Apple iOS built in browser by 52% faster speeds in loading times, and an average of 84% of the websites tested loaded faster in Android than iOS.

Interesting. Was this using the stock Android browser? I bet the numbers would be even more noticeable if Dolphin Mini was used.

Please do share how iOS will be obsolete in the coping years ?
You dont think Microsoft would have Killed off Apple if they could have, Android will die before iOS in my opinion.

The test was Extremely Biased if you read it.
Also as a Droid X user on the Verizon network a Iphone on ATT will load MUCH faster than any Android CDMA Phone.

It annoys me that people think one product must have 100% while the other is no longer produced.
You Think Google/MS/Apple/Ford/Honda/Toyota/Glock/Bushmaster cares about you or your Money?


"The biggest issue some have with these results however is that the tests were done using a ‘homebaked’ app by Blaze"
So Blaze uses and app He created to perform the test.
Im sure his bias has nothing to do with the results from His app.....

Android just topped Blackberry to be the number 1 OS and iOS is in 3rd place. How do you figure android will die first?
At any rate, I don't think neither will die in our generation. ;)

That test was to test the speed of browser not connection speeds.
It's true that AT&T might have the faster 3G speeds at the moment but Verizon's 4G LTE will rule the airwaves. ;)

It's true that AT&T might have the faster 3G speeds) That is irrelevant, when ATT only offers 1x in my area. Verizon will always win any test I run, until they get some competition.
