    Thanks Scott. How are you liking the 9550 over all?
    Device history: 8100 > 8320 > 9000 (brief) > 9530 (Ugh!) & 8900 > 8220 > 8120 > 8520 > 9550
    > 9000 > 9700 9650

    I watched the video again (bored at work on a Saturday morning), and I think my overall impression of the storm 2 browser is that it seems more fluid, less choppy than the storm 1 browser. Granted, I use the Opera Mini 5 beta browser on my storm 1, but at least the native browser seems better overall.

    The phone just seems more responsive to commands and registers actions more quickly and responsively... is that your impression of the phone Scott? You're the one who is actually using it, but that's what I take away from this video.

    Yeah no 3g with the pre released model I have....It is more fluid and responsive...doesnt freeze up as much as the Storm 1...The web browser is more fluid espically how fast it loads the pages

    Thanks Scott, that is indeed fast. Have you had a chance to try using the new opera mini beta to see if that slight delay occurs at the beginning of a page load?

    Keep in mind that the S2 is still in development and that the unit in this video doesn't have the latest firmware.

    Not to mention, we know from RIM's own admission that WIFI browsing is a bit problematic in early OS versions. I think everyone forgot the whole power management WIFI slowdown issue they confessed to. Honestly, I don't even bother with measuring browsing speed on the current browsers anymore. We should all wait for the new browser next year. Anything else right now is old tech anyway. I don't care for it much.

    Its looks like there is a lot of screen flicker. On my Storm 1 this drove me nuts. Is the flicker really there or it is just from the camera's refresh rate that you are filming with?

    WOW the browser looks good on WIFI I'm pretty excited to see how the production model will stack up with this. Is the clicking as loud in person as it is in the video?

    On a side note I noticed that Yahoo has a messed up home page too. Even on my PC this is what the address changes to: m.www That is from my PC browser with the Yahoo part removed so it doesn't auto link it.

    The clicking is much quieter on the updated version.

    Yahoo has been doing that "mobile page on a PC" thing on and off for a few months now. It's very aggravating.

    I think that is probably just from trying to film the screen...In person there is no flicker it is perfect...

    Just go to options > screen/keyboard and turn auto dim off... no more "screen flicker"
