Default Which OS will have Flash media capabilities??

Please Login to Remove!

OK. HTML emails and editing .doc and .xls files will be kinda cool, but I can wait a long time for that. What I cannot wait for, however, is the capability to play Flash video files from the browser. I doubt it's coming in OS 4.5, but does anyone know when/if this will be coming to blackberry?? Blackberry really won't have much on Iphone until they can pull this off. It's so frustrating when I find a great headline in Viigo only to find out that I won't be able to watch the flash video of the story on my BB!!!

Unless something changes, it won't be present in OS 5.0.0, either.

Ouch!! That's a bummer. I thought I'd heard talk earlier that it would be on OS 4.5. A flash player would REALLY enhance the browser or the BB media capabilities in general. As it stands, youtube videos are the only videos you can watch....AND they are flash. I don't understand why they can't play flash videos that come from other sites. Frustrating. Let's hope something changes then!! I would've thought that the BB Bold would definitely have this capability, but it sounds like it won't.
