Lots of mobile news over at MWC at the moment. Found this interesting video showing of Windows Phone 7′s Internet Explorer 9 Mobile with hardware acceleration. Next to a non hardware-accelerated iPhone 4 browsing experience the difference is very dramatic.
It takes advantage of the Win7 XP mode virtualisation to run multiple internet explorer versions in XP VM’s. Apparently in the latest version it doesn;t even need to run on a CPU that is virutalisation enabled (i.e. works in software virtualisation).
