Pocketnow have had a hands-on with the LG Panther and published this extended browser comparison of the Windows Phone 7 browser compared to the Nexus One and the iPhone 4.

As can be seen from the video, while the IE7 Mobile browser is not the fastest, its still pretty fast, and the experience pretty competitive with the webkit browsers on the other platforms.

Given that at present on Windows Phone 7 its IE or nothing else, that’s pretty good news indeed.  The browser is also modular, meaning the software can be updated independently, hopefully to IE9 code eventually.

Do our readers think they could live with IE Mobile on Windows Phone 7? Let us know below.
