    yeah i hear ya - flash isn't everything but would be nice to view certain sites that are flash only or slideshows that run in flash - various youtube like sites which use flash etc.

    "have announced that they'll be porting Adobe Flash to Google's Android" - doesn't mean they will succeed.

    I'll believe it when it works and it doesn't mean it won't come to the iPhone before it makes it to Android. It's very easy to make announcements...

    Hmm, I remember hearing announcements like this for a different OS.... But what could that be? Oh right...The volumes of stories debuting on various tech websites/forums that have stated that Flash would make it to the iPhone... I'm not trying to be pessimistic, but I'm not even holding my breath anymore.

    I don't really care about Flash. Yeah it would be nice, but there are so many other things I want before Flash. After 3.0 is released, most of my wants are going to be hardware related, though.

    Are you familiar with what porting an apps means? Changing the code to make it run on a different platform? Considering how Android is an open platform to write code for, it's not a matter of succeeding or not, it's just a matter of time.

    Thank you for pointing out what porting means. I didn't realise Flash was also open source though.....

    And what? You think they're just gonna blindly hack out a port for Adobe Flash? You don't think they're working with Adobe on this?

    And you think similar stories haven't been around for the iPhone for ages or that it didn't take years to come to Windows Mobile? or Symbian?

    I'm sure you are right and Android is so wonderful it will be ported very soon.

    But I'm not holding my breath.

    I really don't feel bad. It's Apples bad for dropping the ball on this one. They had more than enough time to include it.
