And Apple goes down again? The work-a-holic developer behind xScope, one of the top Android browsers, just sent me test results showing the iPad’s Safari getting crushed by a Motorola Droid during a recent SunSpider benchmark test. Yes you read that correctly.
Here is how the test went down:
1. Fresh start of both iPad and Droid (To be fair to the iPad whose score went up to 15S without one.).
2. Droid: Running CyanogenMod, CPU = 1.1Ghz, xScope browser.
Final result(lower is faster):
iPad: 10172 ms (Full test results)
Droid: 9161 ms (Full test results)
Chalk up another win for Android and our baby, the Motorola Droid. I didn’t think it was possible to continue to be amazed by a device after almost 5 months, but it keeps happening.
And we actually did a quick review of xScope a while back which you should check out. The one-fingered multi-touch is quite snazzy. Oh, our thoughts on iPhone OS 4.0 shouldn’t be missed either.
