Default Super easy question about Blackberry.

Please Login to Remove!

Hi everyone. I do not own a blackberry yet. But can someone please tell me the name of the web browser on blackberry and if it is capable of playing Adobe Flash video's out of the box?

For instance if I were to navigate to youtube would I be able to watch the videos there?

thanks

No flash on the BlackBerry (and few mobile devices).

Yes you can watch YouTube on all the newer models with OS 4.5+

Default question

Hi J thanks for responding. From your reply you say that the blackberry browser doesn't support flash. How then are you able to view youtube videos? I though youtube videos were all in flash. Or does youtube have a special portal to play videos on handheld devices?

thanks

Youtube has a mobile site where the vidoes have been formatted to work on mobile phones without flash.
