Web Browser?

Eric,

I was wondering what your initial impressions of the Web Browser... I'm a Sidekick3 user, and one of the main reasons I use the fone are for its web-browsing features^^;

I stopped by a Helio dealer today, (they didn't have a drift) and played w/ a hero to see if I would be willing to pay the $200 cancellation fee w/ T-mobile in order to get a Drift....

Unfortuantely... I found it slow, and impractical... I don't mind WAP only, but the fact that I have to exit the browser to do ANYTHING else on the fone really kills it for me... The SK3 isn't the GREATEST Multi-tasker, but I can switch between processes really easily, without having to stop one in order to do another..

Did samsung improve anything? Is it any snappier? are yo...

My experience with the web browser has been mixed. First of all, "lightning fast" (quoted from Helo's site) is still a vast exaggeration but I'm going to assume it's as fast as any other "3G" network.

So far, I haven't been able to access any form of Gmail on the Drift. I've tried using every conceivable way, including Google's mobile optimized site gmail.com/app. This seems like a pretty big oversight, especially since they obviously have a partnership with Google.

The fact that it doesn't work pisses me off because I'm a gmail user but it also makes me wonder what other sites aren't going to render.

Hrm... Is it not able to POP3 it into your email?

Are you able to browse w/ the slide closed? that's a major concern of mine.. cause I don't wanna have to pop that crap open everytime I wanna read a page....
