Apple and Android nerds were abuzz yesterday over a report by Blaze, a Canadian software company which claimed that Google’s Nexus S was able to load webpages over an average wi-fi network 52% faster than the iPhone 4. Testing encapsulated more than 45,000 page loads from 1,000 websites with the average load time on the Nexus S and iPhone 4 coming in at 2.14 and 3.25 seconds respectively.
That’s not an insignificant difference, and will only be exacerbated, according to Blaze CTO Guy Podjarny, on tablets that require richer browsing experiences.
But not surprisingly, the testing methodology of the study puts the results into question.
