Research In Motion today announced an upgrade of its core platform software to version 7. The new version of BlackBerry OS, which will first be available on the BlackBerry Bold 9900/9930, makes improvements to usability through use of Liquid Graphics. RIM says Liquid Graphics is faster at rendering on-screen graphics and uses a just-in-time JavaScript compiler to speed up browser performance. The browser now supports HTML5, including HTML5 video. BlackBerry OS 7 also includes the new BlackBerry Balance software, which is meant to help separate work from personal usage. The OS also receives a significant upgrade to universal search with better voice support. RIM didn't say if older devices will have access to BlackBerry OS 7

HTML 5 instead of Flash support?

I know that the internet is trying to make HTML 5 more popular, but Flash will never truly be dead, and a huge percentage of websites use Flash-based graphics, interaction, or even full Flash interfacing. They might've not announced it in this one announcement, but what's the likelihood of Blackberry starting to support Flash? Thoughts?

As much as I love Blackberry

will it take as long to reboot the device as it currently does?

My Blackberry Bold 9650 takes 5 full minutes from to reboot with out-of-the-box settings (no additional apps installed, no documents on the memory card).

After a year's worth of usage and tons of apps installed, it now takes a full 24 minutes (no joke) to reboot!

Does BB OS7 take as long?
