BlackBerry to get Adobe Flash support?

Microsoft's Silverlight too, it's claimed

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Research in Motion (Rim) would probably describe every BlackBerry as flash, but now the firm’s phones look set to become even more so: rumours are circulating that full Adobe Flash support is on its way to the range.

Sources told BoyGeniusReport that full Flash integration will probably be made available for BlackBerry devices from summer 2010. It remains to be seen whether Rim will roll out support across its entire range or just to its leading models, such as the Bold – reviewed here.

The sources also indicated that support for Microsoft Silverlight – a rival to Adobe’s Flash – will also be rolled out for BlackBerry phones in the future.

Hopefully Rim will see fit to launch phones capable of faster connection speeds, enabling users to take full advantage of the Flash and Silverlight support. ®
