From what I gather, RIM with the BlackBerry 10 OS for both the PlayBook and future Smartphones will have Flash support as well as Adobe AIR (which many native PlayBook apps use) so Flash may be a given despite the current browser on the PlayBook and current BlackBerry phones running BlackBerry OS 6 or later already have full HTML 5 support.

The largest problem is by the time they get what BlackBerry owners want on the shelves, it may be too late. I held onto my Bold 9700 for a long time (I loved that phone) but made a huge leap when I bought my Galaxy S2. That being said, I also own a PlayBook and bought it out of simple curiosity. The launch software was awful. Simply awful. RIM made a huge leap with the 2.0 update but to the point now where the company as a whole (RIM) has taken such a beating, that nobody wants a BlackBerry phone or PlayBook no matter even if they bested the upcoming fifth generation iPhone.
