RIM working on full Flash and Silverlight for BlackBerry?


According to the Boy Genius Report, RIM is crackin’ away at integrating full Flash and Silverlight support into their browser.

Yeah, we’re going to go ahead and file this one under “Don’t hold your breath”, with plans to dust it off and start getting excited in a year or so. We’re not saying we doubt BG’s sources; when it comes to BlackBerry, Boy Genius has things locked down. Thing is, RIM’s not exactly known for their browser-making abilities. Getting Flash and Silverlight up and running efficiently on BlackBerry is going to require a good amount of effort from both Adobe and Microsoft, and a fairly beasty piece of hardware to run it on. The source says to keep an eye out next summer – we’d guess it’d come closer to the 2010 Holiday season, at the earliest.
