    Once android tablets no longer have flash support now that adobe abandoned it, I am sure the sites worth visiting will quickly adopt html5. That being said, I have yet to come across a site who's videos are not hosted on YouTube or another site that falls back to HTML5 when flash is not present. Nearly 2 years now on an iPad and less than 1% of the pages I visit have content that can not be displayed, so unless you are holding out for your favorite porn site to go HTML5, quit knocking on a product you have never owned and quit making up statistics... 70% is a blatant lie by an uninformed troll.

    Completely wrong, Android tablets still function and support flash due to the fact that the app still exists. Adobe simply stated they would no longer continue developing or support existing products. Your sure of that eh? you know what the developers are doing and how quickly they will make the push? Video sites using flash are a small portion of whats out there for flash content, be it a small part or most of the site being developed in flash. You obvioulsy failed to grasp the sheer numbers of websites out there with flash content on them. The fact that you say 1% wouldn't display properly, is still a huge number, if you visited 1000 pages in the last 2 yrs that means 100 of them you cannot view in part or in whole on your ipad, thats a pretty large number. I don't really care if you don't believe the % of flash encoded sites out there thats your loss not mine, Im not stuck using a tablet that is not able to view EVERY page on there internet. Believe it or not it will be a few more years yet before HTML5 has completely taken over. And yes I have owned an Ipad, used it very little, doesn't support expandable memory, no onboard hdmi out, no proper widescreen support so vids are cropped way to much, low resolution... I can go on, but I just bought an Android tablet and all was right.

    Do the math, 1% of 1000 is 10. And most websites have iPad HTML5 versions already, that are not as skimmed down as the mobile versions, and are pretty close to the desktop version. This is just a question, do you use your tablet for that much web browsing? I usually tend to go for a laptop or something because websites are optimized for desktops and laptops, not tablets.

    Any flash based site worth anything, has an app for it. An app has way more usefulness than some flash based site. For example, take your tablet and go to weather.com, notice how you have to pan around and zoom in and out to get your local weather. Now The Weather Channel app, has everything about where you are neatly in front if you. Slide your finger around and look at the future weather casts. It is so much easier to navigate with more concentrated info. Now try Walgreens or CVS website .... Same thing ..and you can take a picture of your medication and get a refill. My banking application like the website shows me where my Free-of-Charge atm's are, but my app integrates with my gps program and can take there.

    Flash is limited on a tablet, some sites require a "mouse hover" .. No click... Some require a right mouse click... Some require both mouse and keyboard interaction. A tablet cannot accomplish any of those.

    Flash primarily is user for advertisements on the web - this is a fact.
    There are some legit sites that use flash but if you take into consideration that they provide an app that is built specifically for a tablet, it doesn't matter.
