Windows Phone 8 IE10 gets benchmarked, bests Android


A few days ago we saw that the IE10 build in Windows 8 had shown some improvements with early benchmark scores. That trend continues today with Windows Phone 8 IE10 browser benchmarks, discovered in the logs of html5test.com

The score, shown in the image above (via wmpoweruser) indicates that the new browser currently bests Android. However, it's worth noting that the Android browser is currently available to consumers while the Windows Phone 8 browser is still in development. It would be a more accurate reflection to compare the mobile iteration of IE10 to Android 5.0's browser; unfortunately, we do not have access to those scores.

While we still do not have an official release date for Windows Phone 8 (Apollo), we are hedging our bets and expect to see it in late June at the Windows Phone developer summit in San Francisco. If you need a reminder about what we can expect in Windows Phone 8, you can check out this post here
