We've been hearing it for a while now but this time around we can pretty much put that stamp of "it's official" on it. The above screenshot is what is commonly seen on BlackBerry Smartphones when trying to view Flash based content. Adobe and RIM (as well as many other smartphone manufacturers) have just announced they will be bringing full-fledged Flash integration to our beloved BlackBerry Smartphones in the near future.
“As an industry leader for innovative smartphones and wireless solutions, RIM delivers superior mobile user experiences to customers around the world,” said David Wadhwani, general manager and vice president, Flash Platform Business Unit at Adobe. “It’s a natural fit for both companies to work together to bring Flash technology based video and Web content to BlackBerry smartphone users.”
With RIM not being the only one to join the Open Screen Project, the mobile browser market will be heating up for upcoming devices. Currently 19 out of 20 of the top mobile device manufacturers have signed on to assist with the advancement. 19 out of 20? Anyone wanna pose a guess as to who has not signed on?
