A year ago, I’ve reviewed the BlackBerry Browser for PlayBook –the tablet from RIM- as the browser with better support on new HTML5 APIs (see 1.0 review). Yesterday, 2.0 version of the operating system was released for free for every user and I’ve just investigated the new APIs available. Let’s see what I’ve found.
It’s that time of the year again when the mobile web ecosystem changes. Google Chrome Beta for Android was released and it appears as the future replacement of Android Browser. I’ve made a deep analysis on the browser HTML5 compatibility and the comparison with Safari on iOS and Android Browser and I’ll show in this post my results.
Android 4.0 was announced and the SDK was released. So, I’ve washed my hands, I’ve opened the emulator and I’ve started to dive into the new browser and see what’s in there and what’s not. Unfortunately it’s still Android Browser and not Chrome, but it comes in a better way.
It’s time again for a new version of iOS for iPhone and iPad and a bunch of news about mobile web development. I’ve analyzed every new feature I could found in Safari on iOS5, including what’s the final resolution with expected features as WebGL (3d) on Safari.

On July, 26th I’m doing a workshop at OSCON about jQuery Mobile. If you are there (or not) here you can download the files we are going to use there. It’s algo a very good time to present my new book jQuery Mobile: Up and Running, available un Early Access.
Velocity is an excellent annual conference organized by O’Reilly about web performance (WPO) and web operations. This was my second Velocity as speaker and I’m really surprised how bigger the show is this year. I did a workshop about mobile web & html5 performance optimization and here you have my presentation.
As you may already known, iOS 5 beta 1 was released for registered developers and there was a presentation showing some of the new features in Safari. I’ve made the usual investigation to see what’s new and I find a way to show you what’s new in HTML5.
Nokia has just announced Symbian ‘Anna’, an updated version of Symbian^3 that will be shipped with new devices, such as X7 and E6, and will be available as an OTA update for other devices, such as N8 and E7. I’ve the opportunity to test the new updated browser and here are the results.
