Default Tmobile G1 Browser vs Blackberry Bold Browser

Please Login to Remove!

How does the browser interface and the way it is displayed compared against the G1's Browser vs the BB Bold's Browser??

Has anyone experienced both and have any info on it?
I'm currently a BB Bold User, I don't have MUCH complaints about the browser, it does what I need it to do, but of course it doesn't look like a regular desktop browser like the IPHONE.

check out operamini for an alternate browser. with the 2, you got browsing covered.
ive never used the g1, but since its a google phone, i would imagine its some kind of ie code into a mobile browser, much like the winmo phones. i dont know for sure, but thats my take on it. but opera mini will hopefully complete your browsing

The G1 browser is based on open source WebKit...nothing to do with IE. If you're looking for a phone with a great browser, for now, you'll want the iPhone or G1. The G1's browser isn't as friendly in regards to zooming in and out like the iPhone/Touch is due to the lack of multitouch though.
