Apple IPhone Software Loses Speed Test to Google’s Android

Apple Inc.’s iPhone accessed the Web more slowly through mobile applications than phones using Google Inc.’s Android operating system, according to a report today by a Canadian software company.

The iPhone 4 was slower than Google’s Nexus S smartphone 84 percent of the time when accessing the Web through the browser that operates applications like Twitter and Facebook, according to Ottawa-based Blaze Software Inc. Blaze was unable to compare the Apple Safari and Google Chrome browsers that users access directly from the phone’s home screen.
