and maybe when they get it working on the phones we will have support for our poor net books we bought before the new atoms came out?
I have to say that not having a flash integrated phone from a browser company is pretty sad. It's 2009 and the Android OS has been out for quite a while. We are not asking for anything obscure. Can't anyone write an application to allow for playing flash video easily? I get really frustrated at this kind of stuff. Google lets you play youtube videos, but doesn't even support their own google video pages? What the hell. Plus youtube is worthless unless you want to watch videos of a kid falling off his skateboard or the new puppy video. For a phone this advanced, it is unacceptable that it doesn't have flash...
Seriously for a company with a market cap of 183 billion dollars they can't put a few people on it? Really poor showing...other than that, I love the phone. With the iPhone having a SERIOUS leap on Android, you'd think Google would make this thing hum and nothing is more important than video.
First i'll say it again. The IPhone users are almost "cult like". They aren't that far ahead in anything anylonger. Droid will get flash support and maybe even before the IPhone (3 years later) gets it. Overall the device is VERY VERY good. So enjoy it! By the time we get through the holidays and into the new year. flas will really be just around the bend. Hang in there you won't be disappointed
Sometimes , It is what it is !
The phone and OS are excellent. I am not knocking that, just that they should have been more thoughtful, the only way to beat apple is killer aps. Yeah, Mac/Apple people are cultish, it drives me crazy.
I think what everyone fails to realize is that flash is a horribly overbloated platform with incredible amounts of CPU and Memory overhead.
One can't simply throw in flash support to their phone because it'll pretty much chew the phone up and spit it out as you cry over what a horrible phone you just purchased.
Every mobile maker has been stirring Adobe's pot to get them to optimize and streamline flash so it is available on the mobile platform. It was never designed with mobile devices in mind, and for that, no one has integrated it into their plans.
Now that Adobe has gone and put the effort in, they're seeing a huge boost in speed and quality and everyone (sans Apple) is ready to accept it into their mobile environment.
