    Nope, not really i will most likely turn it off if there is an option. I had Flash on my HTC Dual Touch Pro (HTC Touch Dual (Unlocked) Smartphone reviews - CNET Reviews) when i downloaded and ran Skyfire. It completely KILLED my battery, and i don't think people will see that.

    I would lay 100$ bucks down that after RIM releases Flash to their device. The next complaint will be "my battery sucks"....

    I don't like it but increasingly, you can't browse many business sites because they use Flash even where it shouldn't have been used.

    I install a pile of browsers on my desktop machines and block flash on all but one, so if morons design their website with flash, and I have to use it for ecommerce, etc. I have a way to do so.

    Down with flash, waste of bandwidth, security exposure, etc. Just say NO.
    Amen. Nothing worse than being on the road and wanting to look up where the nearest "whatever" is, going to their website on the Blackberry and finding the whole site (or at least the "location finder") is in friggen Flash

    Gimme HTML and PHP anytime LOL

    I have no big desire to have Flash on my BB, that's why I have a PC. Sorry, Hulu isn't that important to me...

    I'm a photographer and a lot of photography sites are based on Flash to give images a little bit of protection (not much, but a little bit). From what I have seen, HTML5 hasn't addressed securing images. Although most photographers want to open up their websites to mobile viewers, they want images protected without just posting them into a video.

    Sorry, but there's no protection at all in flash. If you can see it you can get it. I rip pics all the time from "protected" sites, it's not hard. Even the simplest methods work, like a screen capture and a quick crop in a paint program.

    Currently my phone does everything I do on it so flash is a not big deal to me .I will use a normal computer if I need to do more then what I do now .So while its not really a big deal to me I still see why others might like it guess thats not alot I can do about it if RIM adds it into the OS though. but personally I dont need it .

    True, but that is why I said little protection. Most common users don't know to do screen captures, and there can be notices, watermarks, and such added to flash to help with awareness.

    I'm just going to say it. I suspect 95% of the people screaming for Flash
    on the BB are people who wish they could view porn on the go. Plain and simple.

    Flash would be great but I would prefer sites built for the BB browser, just as many sites have iPhone specific versions.

    For people who take online classes, flash would be great for most online courses, which don't work without flash.

    Flash is important. I want my browsing experience to be as similar as it is to browse on my PC. I also want to view all websites in full. Watch Youtube on the youtube website etc...

    I'd like flash so I can read my newspaper on the go without lugging my laptop everywhere I go. Of course it would be nice if NewsStand didn't require flash but they do, so there you go.

    No I dont really care about flash. There are times when it would be nice because webmasters use it for required navitation components of their site, but those webmastes really should be using web standards and making HTML equivelents.

    And look at the bright side of not having flash -- not having those annoying flash banner adds lol

    I believe that there is a great blurring and melding between devices. Whether it's a laptop where you can make phone calls or smartphones that act like mini laptops, the two devices are coming (or have come!) together as one.
    I got a notebook that is small, light, has a webcam, and I immediately loaded Skype on it. I have a smartphone that currently provides me with an approximation of the web experience. I want that experience to be complete.
    Yes, developers hate Flash - my teams groan. Yes, HTML5 is coming but not yet here. RIM has opened itself to the consumer market and right now it gives the impression of being behind, weak, *in that market.* With other platforms already giving the consumer a closer experience to full web, it's in RIM's best interest to offer what that market is looking for - at the very least in one or two of its lines.
    RIM entered the consumer market and must remain agile if it intends to avoid being seen as the curmudgeon of the smartphone market.

    Oh yah....I want Flash so I can access everything on the web.

    In this day and age I am greatly disappointed that these phones do not have Flash
    along with all the other goodies.

    Instead they will run us down the road of "trade your phone in for the newest"
    instead of using tech that has been out for years and applying it to phones.

    Just a way to get your $$$.

    PC's blazed the way for this so we should not have to go down that road again for what is basically a small PC.
