    You had to expect me to comment on this one :). All I can say is wow. The phones running Flash look amazing. What I really liked about the videos is how the Adobe users took the high rode. None of them bad mouth Lord Jobs. It’s also great the the users are putting together the videos. They aren’t from Adobe. Adobe would be smart to put together some sort of contest for the best mobile Flash presentation and have people post them to the Flash facebook page. I look forward to getting a Nexus when I’m ready to get my next phone.

    No mention of battery life consumption. Also, I heard the news reports of the Adobe demo, crashing twice on stage. No video of that.

    But, Flash 10.1 has not been released. It is a theoretical discussion until they release something that can be installed on the phones being sold. So far everything I have seen indicates they are having a hard time making it work.

    I’m not a big fan of Jobs but I think you give Adobe way to much credit. These are demo videos, of course they will not bad mouth Jobs/Apple – the point of the video is to demo Flash on the Android not to sling mud. Both Apple and Adobe are both guilty of bad mouthing each other now and in the past so no one here is a saint or even taking the high road.

    As for Flash, until it gets in the hands of third party reviewers and the regular consumer I shall remain skeptical that Flash can run well on low power devices like mobile phones.

    Before I read this blog, I had a bone to pick with Apple. (Check out my blog: http://renareich.com/2010/05/03/why-i-cant-stand-apple/) I don’t like them, so you must understand that I am more than a bit biased when I say that I’m really happy when someone can show them up.

    As far as Flash is concerned, it might take a bit of time, but I’m sure that they’ll work out the problems. It’s not like iPhones are known for their wonderful battery life. I have an iPhone, and I find it really annoying that I can’t keep bluetooth on or I won’t have a battery for the whole day. I use to have a Nokia E71 and the battery on that lasted forever.

    I have to admit that the iPhone is a sweet device. I’m really glad to see that their is serious competition that can compete with iTunes App Store. My next phone will not be an iPhone.

    Will anyone care except yourself what kind of phone you use.

    Wow it must be magical to find Hulu working on a nexus when a presenter at a Flash conference said he can’t do the demo with the site.
