    ...how exactly is it going to work? Will it allow us to install flash apps? or will it simply be a browser based experience? Anybody have any info?

    I was wondering about this exactly. I did not do any reading on it but I also was curious if this means flash will work in only the browser or if perhapse developers could now put in flash componentes into their apps. That, i feel, might open up some new doors. Flash is nice for entertainment, but there are also some great things you can do with its code...

    I am just wondering (probably like many others) if sites like Hulu or SouthParkStudios would actually play, or if there would be a limitation to some video...

    It's going to work just like flash works on your browser on your computer. When you get to a site that needs flash it will be activated.

    Do you 100% know this as fact or are just assuming. I mean we are wondering if it will stretch across the android system or just apply in the browser.

    I'm assuming. There is no other way that I can think of it would possibly work.

    I mean it would apply to you tube, anything else that needed flash I'm sure. But it would be automatic, there wouldn't be anything we need to do.
