BlackBerry 9360 SunSpider benchmark and HTML5 support

February 28, 2012

Recently I’ve had the opportunity to try the latest OS from RIM, the BlackBerry OS 7, on the Curve 9360.

The Curve 9360 is a small qwerty smartphone that, as far as I’ve tested, provides a decent overall performance.

One of the things I ran was the SunSpider javascript benchmark:

As you can see above, it completed the test in 6092.3 ms, which is not bad considering the CPU runs at just 800 MHz. I wonder, though, if the BB OS 7.1 update will provide some improved javascript performance.

The thing that really surprised me was the overall compatibility with the websites I tested the stock browser with. It actually supports HTML5 and got a neat result in the website as you can see below.
