I see an odd behaviour for the 'slide' transition on a BlackBerry Playbook device, running latest OS 2.01.358, using the standard built-in browser.

The problem is that there's a visible flicker on each forward slide transition -- the content slides and you're looking at the new page, and then a bright flicker. This only happens when the device is held in portrait mode (tall), and doesn't seem to happen when the device is being used in landscape (wide) mode.

I have confirmed this issue isn't specific to my app -- I consistently see this on the jQM documentation site too -- go to page http://jquerymobile.com/demos/1.1.0/docs/pages/page-transitions.html and click on the 'page' button next to the slide transition.

I don't generally see this flicker with the browser's back button when it backwards-slides. I only see it on touched links going forward with slide. I don't understand what's different between portrait and landscape.

This is on jQuery Mobile 1.1.0, and I have tested on two different Playbook devices both running that latest OS release.

I'll just add that I've confirmed the issue in http://jquerymobile.com/test/docs/pages/page-transitions.html as well.

I have a gut feeling that this may have something to do with the reader mode in the browser. Some of my in-house devices auto-activate reader mode when you rotate to portrait, but not all. That is a separate issue, and my flicker issue happens on all the devices, but I'm still suspicious. I will also report this issue to RIM.

Hey @csaldanh and @jasondscott It's been a couple years since anyone has commented on this issue. Can you guys confirm whether or not this is still an issue with the latest JQM?
