iPhone 3GS Bested By Android Archos 5 Tablet in Browsing Benchmarks

By | Oct 28, 2009

We’ve already seen the iPhone 3GS handily win an ARM Cortex A8-powered browsing bakeoff against the Palm Pre, but now that a few more devices have hit the scene with the processor it’s time for another round, don’t you think? Pocketables certainly does, and they’ve pitted the 3GS against a pretty eclectic group of devices, including the Sharp NetWalker Android “smartbook,” the Archos 5 IMT, and the Archos 5 Android PMP. That’s two Android devices, one funky proprietary OS, and the iPhone, all running different browsers on different variants of the same chip design, so there are obviously a lot of variables at play here, but the results are still interesting: the 800MHz Android Archos 5′s WebKit browser was just a tick faster than the 600MHz iPhone 3GS, turning in an average page-load time of 9.0 seconds as opposed to 9.6, while the 800MHz NetWalker and 600MHz Archos 5 IMT trailed at 10.3 and 11.6 seconds. All we’re taking away from that is that WebKit-based mobile browsers still seem to be the speed champs, but we’re sure you have a different opinion.
