The mobile browser speed wars continue, and the latest fray comes courtesy of website optimization firm Blaze with claims that Android is 52-percent faster than iPhone, and quicker - in real-world testing - on 84-percent of sites. That's despite Apple's much-vaunted Nitro JavaScript engine, new to iOS 4.3 on the iPhone and iPad 2. We spoke to Blaze to find out more about the testing process, and in what ways the company was interpreting the results.

The iPad 2, Steve Jobs took to the stage to tell us, offers twice the performance of the original iPad and 9x the graphics performance, thanks to its dual-core 1GHz Apple A5 processor.

IE9 SunSpider oddness prompts Microsoft benchmark-gaming rumors

IE9 SunSpider oddness prompts Microsoft benchmark-gaming rumors
