    Testing the D2 in the store. Went to abc.com to try an episode of "Modern Family." Video was really jerky. I waited so long for a phone to have the ability to show Flash, which made the experience quite disappointing. Is this as good as it gets, or do I need to do something differently?

    Well there is a reason for this. Chances are the video that you pulled up was not optimized for mobile devices so in essence it is trying to squeeze 3 pounds of crap into a 1 pound bag. There are mobile optimized flash sites for video that work like a charm.

    Was the one you tested upgraded? I went to abc.com and had a look around on my D2. Some spots were a little jerky, but it's what I would expect from a device like this.

    Maybe your expectations are too high? Or maybe the ones you played with it the store were not updated to the latest OS version.

    The flash on my Droid1@1Ghz runs better than the flash on my home computer (1.6Ghz Emachine with 2Gig Ram...piece of junk nowadays).

    Maybe we have to live with this until some future upgrade?

    Possible the store model was messed up, but what do you mean by "upgraded?" Don't all D2's come with 2.2 already installed. Besides, I gotta say it wasn't just a little jerky; it was genuinely unwatchable. I've since run across the review from LAPTOP magazine were the guy had the same exact experience as me, it sounds like. Seems like that's just the way it is unless the site is optimized specifically for Flash mobile. Not how I thought it would be. Requires a solid shift in expectations. Adobe or Motorola should have done something to manage those expectations better, I think.

    Hook, where do you get the that number exactly? I see Baseband version C_01.43.01P, Kernel version 2.6 32.9-g874c292 android-build@apa26#1 and Build number FRG22D. I did the first 2.2 update from Google's site and the Flash update OTA. Is that why our numbers are different?

    bhall238, sounds like you have a Droid 1.

    This thread is pertaining to the Droid 2.

    Thus the differences in version numbers.
