    I didn't know QNX was heavily based on Flash. Anyways, RIM should focus on developing a solid OS and bringing OS 8(?) to their mobile phones.

    I don't know why, but I really dislike RIM. This news doesn't really help either... :(

    So basically Adobe went "Guys, i've decided to agree with a lot of you and mobile flash is definately not the way forwards".

    Then RIM went "Perfect, now we can offer our users an even more poorer experience".

    Or will RIM support HTML5??

    The answer to your question is in the article you may want to try reading it again.
     
  8. Let me see here. I have spent countless dollars on PB OS2 which includes Flash and HTML5. Adobe just decided they were wrong and will now focus on HTLM5.

    My choices are:
    1. scrap my already in progress work, waste my money
    2. continue with the development of my OS while still supporting both Flash and HTML5

    Its interesting people just will see ONLY what they want, taking what appears to be the bad side of things.

    The problem with Black Berries: They just aren't cool.

    If RIM could just get a cool factor going for them they could recover.
