    BlackBerry Storm Browser Keeps Pace With Peers

    "Touchscreen browser lacks tabbed browsing but compensates with a handy desktop-like cursor mode."

    Research In Motion's BlackBerry Storm features a Java-based full-HTML browser, which RIM claims is in the same class with the browsers on iPhone, Palm Pre, Nokia, and Android devices. In many respects, that assertion is true.

    The Storm's main browser window provides an address bar at the top and a Google search bar underneath. The window shows your bookmarks and last visited sites under the two bars, and you can click two little blue arrows to expand your bookmarks and your history.

    When you tap on the address bar to enter a URL, the Storm will present you with a SureType keyboard (two keys on a button, as on the BlackBerry Pearl) and with a full QWERTY keyboard when in landscape mode.

    A progress bar at the bottom of the screen tracks the page-loading progress and also lets you know when data or a script is loading. The page's title appears next to the status bar at the top of the screen; meanwhile, the 'www.' button on the black bar at the bottom of the screen offers quick access to the main screen, where you can enter another URL or perform a Google search.

    Not sure what medication those folks over at RIM and PC World are taking, but I would like to have some. The Storm browser doesn't come close to competing with mobile safari. Not sure about the others.
