    From what I read the phone isn't going to run flash, but the dev's can have a version of flash to create apps with. so the phones browser won't support flash. What's the difference?

    I thought Jobs said at the event where he introduced the ipad that he didn't believe in Flash and strongly hinted at something better in the pipeline?

    Steve Jobs has said that he has no intention of using flash on the iPhone. He considers flash to be a problematic technology. He has said just about every problem ever associated with a Mac goes to Flash. I strongly doubt that iPhone will get Flash.

    And 2.1 and Flash are indeed two different items, 2.1 does not come with Flash.

    While I don't like Steve Jobs I agree with him 100% on this. I could care less if the Droid ever gets Flash. I can do without that virus on my phone.

    On the fence here......i can agree with you 50% but thats only because there are quite a few websites i go to that you need flash for. One of them being our local weather from one of our local TV stations. With it there is no mapping and such. Oh well, we will see what happens

    The bottom line is that having Flash on our phones will open up a whole realm of more possibilities and that is the big deal. That is what all the excitement is for. Ya it can cause problems but what does not cause problems. Steve Jobs is getting all crunk about HTML5 and how it is going to take over the industry. You say you don't want Flash but really you do because of what it really can do. No one really even knows its full extent for cell phones because it is not here yet. Look how flash changed computers and think how it could change cell phones.

    I agree with you on this one. Just about anything can be used the wrong way to create problems. The reason steve jobs doesn't want flash is simple.. and this is the root of the problem, apple wants control, with flash.. it opens up the doors to many things that they don't want you to do. Plain and simple.

    Jobs hates Flash because every hack contest for the last two years has had OS X falling first...due to Flash vulnerabilities. It totally undermines the facade that OS X is more secure than Windows ;)

    ^^^^^^ exactly on the two above me.

    Anything that Jobs does not have complete control over he will not like. There are people that still believe that the flash enabled apps that have been said to be coming for the Iphone will still get blocked by Jobs. I believe Flash has tremendous potential and I cant wait.

    my eris has flash for when i need it. im really glad the browser doesnt have flash though. That's all I want when I'm out is to hear "congratulations, youve been selected to win a free ipod nano" coming from my phone. Flash in general on phones is one of those everybody wants it but nobody really needs it kinda things.
