Windows Phone 7 running IE9 handily beat the iPhone and Android Nexus S in a HTML5 speed reading test. The test was performed by Joe Belfiore, Director of the Windows Phone program at the MIX11 developer conference in Las Vegas yesterday.
It was used a HTML5 speed reading demo from Microsoft’s own ietestdrive.com site. The demo ran at around 20 FPS on Windows Phone “Mango” and 11 FPS on the Android Nexus S device. Despite having a five second head start, the iPhone 4 crawled along at 2 FPS and failed to finish in time. Google’s Android device finished in second place behind Windows Phone’s Internet Explorer 9.
