    Not sure why but the download times for the news articles on the Iphone 4 for the Bloomberg application is about 4-6 times faster at minimum on the Iphone 4 vs the Nexus S. Whether it be using wifi or 3G the download speeds on the Nexus S is quite slow compared to the Iphone 4. Anyone know why :thinking: The news articles download really fast on the Iphone 4 but download at a snails pace on the Nexus S.

    I've never used the Boomberg app to know if what you say is really the case, but it could just be that they did a very poor job writing the Android version of the app. There are plenty of other apps, like web browsers, barcode scanners, camera utilities, etc that perform better on Android than on the iPhone.

    Best thing you could do is contact the developer and voice your concerns.

    Still very slow and has not been updated to speed up downloads. On my Iphone 4 it is about 4 times faster to download the same articles. Slow on both 3G and WIFI.
