Re: RIP Iris Browser for WM, RIM acquires Torch Mobile

I think RIM's thinking is that they finally better get a decent browser on their phones 'cause them people are starting to really want to use that intertubes thingy...

Re: RIP Iris Browser for WM, RIM acquires Torch Mobile

I tried Iris but never really liked it, especially compared to Skyfire and Opera Mobile 9.7 with the Turbo Mode. At least BB will get a decent browser. Their stock one was as bad as the stock PalmOS web browser, both of which were way worse than PIE.
