RIM adding full flash and silverlight to BB Browser. BB 9700 coming to AT&T in time for Black Friday!


Without any filler or hesitation, there are two big pieces of information that all of the CrackBerry addicts out in internet land need to know:

  • First: RIM is planning on adding FULL Flash and SilverLight support into the BlackBerry browser. Now, re-read that…planned is the keyword. According to various BGR insiders with seeds planted inside of RIM, next summer appears to be the rough guestemation date of a possible release on said support. As has been mentioned before in regards to full mobile flash support, RIM is working on beefier BlackBerries with higher spec’d internals in order to pull off the mobile eye candy tango. A second crucial piece in the trek to full Flash/SilverLight is the need for not only beefier hardware but also the need for higher speed data services…(ahem) LTE/HSPA/4G…you may step forward now. The same insiders say RIM has already achieved successful tests with data speeds ranging in the 10Mbps range in RIM labs with lab equipment and test networks. Again, all they’re waiting on now is those same speedy networks to make their way outside. Whew! 10Mbps wireless data speeds…sweet!
  • Second: The BlackBerry 9700/Bold/Onyx will debut just in time for Black Friday if internal AT&T testing goes as planned *fingers crossed*. For those of you looking to upgrade your less than new BlackBerry to the trackball-less, touch pad rockin’ new hotness don’t have too much longer to wait.

Hey, at least you know a time frame now right? Who can’t wait for the mercury to drop and the Berries to start flyin’?
