BlackBerry Browser To Offer Full Flash and Silverlight Support

RIM is reportedly planning to include full support for Flash and Silverlight in upcoming versions of their BlackBerry web browser. They are not talking Flash-lite, but full Flash. If RIM is able to deliver their next generation browser that is on par with Safari, they might just one-up Apple if able to offer support for Flash. To date, Apple doesn’t seem interested in supporting Flash. Palm’s webOS browser will likely see an update to offer support for Flash lite.


Word has it this will not find it’s way to devices until next summer, but it’s certainly encouraging. It appears RIM is taking on the challenge of developing a browser that will compete with the best of them.
