You may be wondering, “what exactly is that… exactly?”

Well, The Open Screen Project is an industry wide initiative, led by Adobe, supported by other industry leaders that share one vision-

“Enable consumers to engage with rich internet experiences seamlessly           across any device, anywhere.”

If only… Then the world would be complete.

So what does this mean for RIM? Well, the overall goal of the Open Screen Project, is to allow flash player and adobe air to run cleanly on any device; mobile, or home, so RIM will definitely receive full flash player support whenever the Open Screen Project gets it’s first browser up and running.

According to the Adobe website, we can expect the first release by the summer of 2010. (Though a beta version of the flash player will be ready a little later on this year.)

Anyway, RIM seemed more than happy to finally commit towards working on a new and improved blackberry browser.

But they aren’t the only company with something useful to contribute;
