BlackBerry PlayBook gets browser demo: Flash, HTML5, more [Video]

RIM has outed another BlackBerry PlayBook demo video, this time showing the QNX tablet's browser in action. As well as streaming HTML5 video, the demo shows Flash-based gaming and social networks like Facebook, including support for things like Facebook chat.

As you'd hope, being an official demo, the PlayBook puts in a good showing. Pinch-zooming is smooth, even when pages are rendering, and in-page video clips from sites like YouTube work as you'd expect. We're still reserving judgement until we can have a play ourselves, but so far things are looking solid.
