    I'll give it a shot;"Buy one get one free""Now for unlimited time Android tablets $99""Aww hell, go get your moneys worth and pick up an iPad""Steve Jobs was right and we were wrong""Now your Tablet and phone will have better battery life""Who really needs Flash anyway"I think with these selling points Android could gain market share.

    ^^^ Everytime I post on the front page my posts are turned to one big unreadable paragraph? Annoying.

    Let me see if I read that correct? Adobe is discontinuing Flash and RIM is still going to continue to develop it for use on it's products? Really?

    Someone call the 'Foolish Squad" and stop by RIM's HQ with flash cards or any other learning tools to help them out.

    Well, all Android devices will soon have the full Chrome browser experience, so no biggie. If anyone thinks flash is Android's only advantage, then they're seriously misinformed. I've always enjoyed having it, but its just another feature on long list.

    RIM is misinformed, and one of Androids main selling points is no longer worthwhile.

    I've heard too many Fandroids today talk about how flash was just an "ok" feature after they gloated about it for the past year. I think they are seriously in denial.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but so far this is just a rumor. Edit: no longer a rumor http://tinyurl.com/7ty2k5x

    Nothing from Adobe but layoffs.Until then I'll add this....I still prefer my tablet over an idevice. Oh, and best of my knowledge this "fandroid" has only mentioned flash once. I'm not sure I considered this a selling point though when I made my purchase.


    BTW, del....why the anti-android articles........??????

    Nope. It's been confirmed.

    http://www.engadget.com/2011/11/09/adobe-confirms-flash-player-is-dead-for-mobile-devices/

    When I said "fandroid" I wasn't talking about you, Cooley, but I still admire your strong opinion.

    Not having Flash on those Android devices going forward will only make them better, stronger and faster not to mention having a longer lasting battery.

    Exactly.

    Even though HTML5 has a long way to go, at least we are moving past Flash and its inadequate performance.

    Since the Playbook is on here, and all the comments have been for the Android, the latest news on the Playbook, is that RIM will continue to support Flash and HTML5, Adobe will continue to support it on the Playbook. So we will see how it goes. I didn't buy the Playbook because it had Flash I bought it because it has true multitasking

    Y'know, like everything else that's come and gone, this is going to be one helluva long process...IMO nothing to worry about, or to even "live" in expectations of the "new" HTML5 or any other that will probably pop up. By that time our present phones, smartphones or pads are history...
