    First time poster, long time reader. I do contract work for Verizon every so often. Today while working I asked the manager about 2.1. Was informed that the update will roll out the end of the month WITH FLASH! He said the inclusion of flash was the reason for the delay. By now I know not to get too excited but it makes sense and the guy seemed to know what he was talking about.

    That would be nice, but I'm not gonna get excited until I see proof. I've been disappointed too many times already...

    And I haven't heard anything about the Nexus getting flash. Do you really think the Droid will get it before the Nexus? I doubt it.

    We can hope though. It would be nice to get SOMETHING before that damn Nexus.

    :rofl3: ^this
    First :welcome: but now... you'll learn soon enough that the people that work for/with VZW (ESPECIALLY at the store) know JACK SH!* about what's going on... there are several VZW employees on this forum and they will tell you that they are always the LAST to know anything official and that their stores (work areas) are FILLED with unconfirmed/unofficial BS... But welcome to the board.

    We could always put a Flash icon on our phones to show off then if someone wants to see something just say "oops my battery just died" and leave....:icon_eek:

    i just read through the article. it makes no mention of Android 2.0... it was talking about its new platform "AIR 2.0", a development kit for Flash "outside the browser", which is unrelated to Android 2.0 and subsequent Flash inclusion, sadly.
