The new iPad is here with iOS 5.1. I’ve done the usual research and, mm… there are no much new details to give you. However, the new iPad retina display remembers us some web stuff we should be aware of while creating iPad web experiences.
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.

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.
