Truer words were never spoken. However, coming from a 9000 which I have owned, the new webkit browser with the tabbed browsing and swipe is a welcome leap forward from previous RIM browsers. There is really no need to install a 3rd Party browser. The slightly under-powered processor as compared to the i4 or android devices has been optimized to work quite well by OS 6. I have a feeling that browsing experience will get better with the next official OS after version .246. The Torch performs well against my wife's i3Gs and very respectably versus the i4 and Captivate. Any expectations that it would kill either device are a bit unrealistic at best. The trackpad will be a welcome change from the trackball and in conjunction with the touchscreen and physical keyboard, the experience will be that much more profound coming from a 9000.
