Default Blackberry video capabilities

Please Login to Remove!

Is it possible to play videos on the Blackberry 8270 either streaming or directly from the device?

Does anybody know of solutions out there?

Thanks, Dennis

Nope -- I don't think there is any way to do this under the current Blackberry environment...

Maybe about 1 picture per second, but that's about it. (Like some other cellphones with early streaming video) The Blackberry CPU isn't very fast and is more optimized for other tasks than video. It's possible future Blackberries will be powerful enough though;
