    I sold mine so I can't test this out but I'm curious how the iPad 1 handles the same task seen in this video at the 0:43 mark where they load the "Live from Appls' iPad 2 event".

    http://www.viddler.com/explore/engadget/videos/2575/

    And here is that page where to find the "Live from iPad 2 event"...scroll down almost 1/2 way down the page.

    http://www.engadget.com/page/7/

    How does the iPad 1 handle this? How long does it take to load the page and then if you scroll down quickly, does it load all the photos instantly or do you get the checkered pattern?

    It took mine 15.1 seconds to load the entire page and I'm also running 4.3 GM with updated safari.

    Looks like it took about 7 seconds in the video, so a pretty big difference and you have the 4.3GM already running. Would be curious how it compares to 4.2.1 software.

    I just tested it with iOS 4.2.1. Well... To load the entire page without any checkered boards took 1min 35 sec!:eek: With the first few pics it took about 20sec. The iPad 2 and new safari is defiantly way faster.

    Mine took 37 seconds to load the page on iOS 4.2, but my slow DSL might be the bottleneck since my iMac7,1, OSX 10.6.6, took a similar 36 seconds to load the page.

    Once the page is loaded, the appearance of mosaic seems to depend on how fast you scroll. The guy in the video wasn't really pushing it, IMHO. I can easily trigger mosaic on iPad1 if I flick up/down faster than video-guy.

    I guess I'll be re-doing that test in-store, come March 11 :)

    Yep, that's when I would notice it as well and when it would bug me the most, when I rapidly scrolled down a web page.

    Another good test is going to be this thread here. It's a massive photo collection and on iPad 1, not all the pictures load. A large majority end up as little blue squares with a ? in them.

    Yes, I'd like to see an iPad 2 test on a page like that. It'll give us some idea of the memory bump.
