You'll love it , I promise. The only downside so far is no hulu since apple and Adobe apparently don't like each other.

There's going to be a Flash plugin in Android. AT&T can't handle Flash support, which is why it's not on iPhone methinks.

I think you're both right actually - I think it's not "technically" possible on AT&T right now (though I'm not sure) AND many people believe Apple will never support flash because of some sort of feud with Adobe...

This is what it says


Flash Player not available for your device

Apple restricts use of technologies required by products like Flash Player. Until Apple eliminates these restrictions, Adobe cannot provide Flash Player for the iPhone or iPod Touch.

Stupid feuds! This is one of the many facts that is slowly pushing me to a Droid, etc. when my contract is up in 3 months or so...

The idea of an Apple-Adobe feud is vague, I think. The two big reasons why Flash isn't on iPhone is because it'll use up a lot of CPU power and memory and like I said, AT&T can't handle that much data streaming over its network.

However, Apple is notorious for being a closed proprietary ecosystem. That means whatever applications are built by developers for Apple's platforms have to be built using their platform tools and approved by Apple to be circulated (or sold) on their platforms. If you think about it, a developer can bypass Apple's app store and port their videos or games through Flash instead or a site that enables Flash (i.e. Youtube). So, that might be the root of it, really. That's why Android-enabled phones are important because the fact that it's open-source lessens the barriers to develop for it. With the kind of branding and hold of the market Apple has, it'll take a while if Android ever beats out iPhone as a platform.

Whatever the case, I like the Android system. There are still design flaws but the fact I could get a more complete mobile web browsing experience, with access to Youtube, Netflix, Hulu, etc. is more appealing to me than iPhone.

Anyhow, what I'd really love is for a true 4G network in America. :-L

We went to get a new phone for our daughter last night because she lost her old one.... I drooled over an HTC...Plus they have a buy one smartphone, get the 2nd free deal. VERY VERY tempted. We would have probably got two, but one thing allowed me to put it down and walk out of the store....No 3G coverage in our area and no idea when it's coming. T-mobile sucks.
