    I guess I'm talking about the processor?

    Looking for a comparison as I own the iPhone 4 is the 1st gen iPad as slow as a snail as far as loading webpages? Or about the same/quicker?

    Considering that the A4 processor inside the iPad is clocked faster than the A4 processor on the iPhone 4, no the first iPad is not as slow as a snail.

    That's great news was there ever any comparison tests done what else is different as far as upgrade/downgrade?

    Aside from the obvious retina display

    I would put them about the same. The iPad has a 1 ghz processor compared to the 800mhz process of the iPhone 4. Direct comparison would say the iPad would be faster; however, the iPad has a slightly higher resolution than the iPhone so it is pushing more data out at any given time. I would put it pretty equal in the end.

    Also, the first iPad had half as much RAM as the iPhone 4, which caused pages/tabs to be reloaded far more frequently than on the iPhone. It also caused more checkerboarding while scrolling. The iPad 2, with its 512MB of RAM (double its predecessor) does not suffer from the same problem.
