Mark Spoonauer interviews RIM co-CEO Mike Lazaridis:

Q: How do you think RIM stacks up to the competition when it comes to your Web browser?

A: I look at it this way. I say that our browser technology was developed with very different requirements. By writing our browser in Java, that provides our CIOs and wireless managers the assurances they need, to allow the browser to access internal information at the same time it accesses external information. So the overriding design criteria for our browser has been to not compromise on that experience in the enterprise phase.

Just me or is that a convoluted way of admitting their web browser blows chunks?
