Last month, RIM released OS 2.0 for the BlackBerry PlayBook. We were already very impressed with the PlayBook 1.0 browser, and we were anticipating more, new and better. We put it through our HTML5 test wringer, and were pleased to find that the PlayBook 2.0 browser is an excellent upgrade, adding new features and upgraded performance in several areas. Notably, it features the first HTML5 color picker input type that we’ve seen on mobile, advanced SVG filters as well as a perfect Acid 3 score.
Today, we’re happy to announce the release of Sencha Touch 2 RC and our native packaging for Windows and Mac.
Two years ago, we set out on a journey to make the web mobile. Today, we’re raising the bar with the release of Sencha Touch 2 Beta.
We tried a bevy of HTML5 specific tests to evaluate the PlayBook browser to see how well it works as an mobile web app platform. Read on to find out more about the latest & greatest addition to the tablet market.
