Unfortunately you cannot use Flash in a mobile web page.  You have a couple of options for BlackBerry.

 

1) Animated Gifs

2) SVG

Re: Tool to be used for developing Mobile based Websites

If you are looking for Animation across multiple mobile browsers you are pretty much going to have to stick to Animated Gifs.

 

Some mobile browsers support Flash Lite, but that technology has been dropped for full Flash 10.  Flash 10 support in mobile browsers is expected to start rolling out in 2010.  There are only a handful of mobile browsers that had initial support for Flash Lite support

 

Some mobile browsers support SVG, and some support Canvas for programmatic drawing via JavaScript. 

 

Unfortunately there isn't a single animation technology that fits all except for simple animated gifs.
