Wow... and that's on wifi, too! That would be absolutely painful for me to use the Bold at that speed.

Wonder what kind of processor the Bold is sporting.

I just don't trust these videos anymore after seeing that iPhone 3g with 2.0.1 vs 2.0.2.....it doesn't make sense

I don't think that video is showing network speed. It's showing CPU rendering speed. This is a very beautiful thing about the iPhone. It is über efficient.

That makes me appreciate the iPhone more.
Using the BlackBerry's Browser since I switched has been awful :(

that video was found to be inaccurate. they are running the bold on 3g/edge:

scroll down to the update section. Also this new blackberry has updated software that has an improved browser, albeit, most reviews show that it still loses to the iPhone's safari. This is obvious since the lack of a touch screen/multitouch and a smaller screen for browsing makes using the trackball seem primitive. I have never used a blackberry but this is what I hear from bold reviewers.
