All I know is my friend who was sat through a live demo with a final unit said it can do everything the Apple and Samsungs of the world can do but does it faster...as it relates to the browser....I specifically asked if it was on LTE and he said no it was on wifi

For the rest, the test does not pitch both devices in the same condictions so it can't really be a reference. Have both devices on the same networkl both with sim cards in and then we can do testing. Even better if both are sim-less and on wifi, so signal strenght doesn't get in the way.

So of course the Galaxy S3 is going to be faster because it has a 1.5 GHz dual krait core (which is faster than cortex A9) CPU vs. dev alpha B with a downclocked 1 GHz dual core cortex A9 CPU.
If you interpolate the sunspider scores, a fully clocked 1.5 GHz Blackberry 10 will have about the same sunspider score as the iphone 5 --- which is going to be a lot faster than the Android counterparts.

Another example, the stock Android JB browser has considerably better Sunspider scores than Chrome running on the same device.
This shows that:
1. RIM can improve the JS performance without any changes to the actual hardware
2. You can't directly predict JS performance based on clock speed alone
3. Sunspider is not an accurate measure of overall CPU performance

PS: the dot's benchmark in the video is really about benchmarking the GPU --- which the other smartphones have dual core GPU's or triple core GPU's vs single core GPU on the dev alpha B.

again brings me back to the score and performance. yes a higher score but thats numbers. looks good on paper. in real life looks to load a little more info than the i5 because of the full html so there for it ran a tad slower. id like to see them clear the cache of both devices and go to about 10 websites to see which is faster on average.

The LTE Playbook which sports a full speed 1.5 GHz OMAP4460 but runs on ancient Playbook OS 2.01 --- gets a better sunspider score (1400 sunspider) than people with dev alpha's (which is around 1500 sunspider).

I think the real test will come when we have our hands on the actual hardware, NOT A Dev Alpha, and when we have some gold code, NOT some crippled alpha developer only software! That being said what is shown in the videos does look promising, and what little we have been shown of production like hardware has looked good too. I'm pumped!
