doesnt look too bad at all. I am sure it is not a browser limitation on the flash though, more of an OS limitation. Hopefully RIM is working on this and going to release flash capability into their own browser

What does everyone think - looks similar to Opera Mini but can do flash, and loads much far as I can see its only going to be for Mobile Windows - ugh....I wish it worked I'm sick of and tinytube....neither work really and even when they do the quality is rubish.

p.s. Whatever happened to that new OS that was supposed to come out in January that would allow the curve to record video too?!

I think the new OS was slated for the First quarter not January.
