    OS7 browser does not support Flash.

    Here's a good video comparison of browsers:

    Yikes. I know the I phone 4 is a no go with flash, I want a phone that I can use to view web pages, the big ***** with my curve is I can't see flash supported web sites, if the new BB OS can't support it, then I will have to get into a Andriod based phone.

    I'm not into the touch screan's, pinch and peal, ect, And I have no use for tablets, Really dumb that a black berry tablet can support flash, but thier phones can't.

    All the basic of features of the black berry phones, I really like, but web pages are more importnat.

    I hear ya. I switch away from BlackBerry for that exact reason. I needed a good browser. I use it a lot. I visit full websites, and a lot have Flash content. The BlackBerry browser on OS5 and OS6 is crap, so I went Android.

    Blackberry QNX devices are going to have Flash browser, but who knows when that will be.

    I'm happy with my Android browser, it's awesome! I do miss some aspects of BlackBerry though.

    I am considering a 9930 in Jan '12 but not sure I can function with its browser.

    If you want to stay BlackBerry, I suggest getting a PlayBook that you can bridge. That way you'll have a good browser. Two devices, yes. But at least a great browser and a BB.

    BlackBerry OS7 Devices do not support flash, BUT Youtube is supported if that is your main reason for wanting flash.

    as for the Browsing experience, I have found it to be beautiful on OS7 devices, it wasn't TERRIBLE on the Torch 9800, but the 9900 is actually enjoyable to surf on when I can't break out the PlayBook or Laptop.

    BUT my browsing experience is very much limited to links I am sent in BBM
    Company website
    Google news
    Globe and Mail
    Crackberry

    I don't go onto many image intensive sites
