HTC HD2 browser test

Pocketnow posted a video showing the HTC HD2 Opera Moile 9.7 in action against Safari on the iPhone 3GS. Brandon also demos the SkyFire browser:

Opera Mobile 9.7 on the HD2 is a great step forward in terms of improved browsing experience on Windows Mobile, but Safari on the 3GS is still IMO the best mobile browser around (no-flash support and the lower resoution beeing the only downsides).

    Don’t u think it’d be helpful to say exactly WHY u think safari is the better browsing experience?

    Sorry, didn’t have much time to develop my thoughts when I posted the news. I’ll do my best to answer this question in my upcoming HTC HD2 review.
    For example, IMO Safari’s biggest “feature” is its total integration within the OS (safari’s rederingg engin is used to read the mails,pdf,etc) and ease of use (the UI)etc. Opera Mobile 9.7 on the HD2 is really close to it though.
