Ultra-quick Samsung WebKit review

On Thursday I got a Samsung bada test phone (the Wave) that runs the latest installment of Samsung WebKit, and of course I subjected it to various tests. The verdict is clear: excellent browser. As far as I’m concerned it ousts Opera Mobile from my personal top three.

Judge for yourself. This is what the latest Samsung WebKit supports:

Not bad, right? Next week I’m on holiday, but when I return I’ll update some more tests with Samsung WebKit data (as well as data on other recent updates; most notably Android).

Hope we (Opera) can win you back:) Nice to hear the Bada supports widgets.

Looking forward to your review of WebKit on Androids 2.1 and 2.2, PPK! I've recently picked up an HTC Desire, and it'd be nice to know the browser's up to scratch by empirical evidence rather than my own unreliable observations. ;)

Also, great to hear Bada has a WebKit-based browser too - last thing we need is *another* browser cluttering up the mobile market. :)

As I know, LGE GD880's Phantom browser is the 3rd browser that supports Touch event. It seems to be one of best Webkit based browser in Non-smart OS category.
