    Many of you have seen the video from engadget showing the iphone absolutely destroy both the Droid and Nexus at loading webpages. Well, I did my own test, and here are the results.

    I also have 7 widgets running on my droid. Obviously my gf's iphone 3gs doesn't have ANYTHING running.

    Cool. I've seen similar results.

    So many of these sites seem so iPhone-bias it borders on disturbing. And yes, I realize I'm on a Droid-bias forum, but you know what I mean. :D

    I'd even be willing to say that in the engadget video they had the iphone connected to a wifi network with a very strong signal and connected the android phones to a different network with a weak signal. Either that or they loaded the webpage on the iphone previously, but not on the android phones.

    As I said in the other thread. Seems they had pre-loaded the webpage on the iPhone but not on the Droid or the Nexus One.

    Engadget is just a bunch of iPhone fan boys!

    Thanks for the video.

    Did you ever go to that website before with either phone? I'm wondering what would happen with a new website that neither phone has been to.

    Yes both phones have been to that website, as said in the description.

    I can try the thing you suggested when I get home. What website would you guys suggest?
