    Simple two part question.

    1. What is the benefits of Flash over HTML 5? (besides that 99% of contents is already in Flash format)

    2. Can the Droid do HTML 5?


    Bonus Question.
    Is the media player on the Nexus the same as a Droid? I would really like to find a media player for video that was worth a darn.

    Flash has been around for many years while html5 is still in flux and browsers are just starting to support it. Flash is a mature product.

    The droid can do some basic HTML5, but as the standard is still under development, it is not complete on the droid. By the way, I saw an estimate recently that said the html5 standard should be complete around the year 2020--no joke.

    Last I heard droid should do flash "first half of this year".
