Default Flash player

Please Login to Remove!

A lot of web pages cannot be displayed properly due to lack of Flash Player on my Storm or any Storm, for that matter.
Is there any way to circumvent this ? Is there a (reliable) Flash Player version for the BB OS ??
Thanks in advance.

Flash is not supported on BlackBerry devices.

Does that mean I just have to give up browsing web pages that contain Flash applications ? Sounds like a big limitation.

For now, yes. There aren't many smart phones that support flash natively, not even the iPhone. I have heard rumors that RIM is working on a browser that will be flash compatible. Also, Skyfire is working on a browser that allows for the viewing of Flash. But, for now, it isn't possible on the BlackBerry.
