Flashplayer on the Storm

Does RIM or a third party plan on releasing something that will allow you to play web sites that use flash?

Re: Flashplayer on the Storm

As I understand it, no handheld has flash installed on it, so you won't find any 3rd party apps that will play flash.   Somehow, you can go to Youtube and view .flv files but if the site is 100% flash you will either see their alt site or no site at all.

 

Sorry to give you bad news.

Re: Flashplayer on the Storm

The new Eris Droid phones have flash players. They have a Last.fm app and can stream radio (through the internet) --- Come on, RIM, please get on it. I feel like I've got last years' tech again. :smileysad:
