When Flash can make a stable product on an Apple platform, Apple will include it.
The whole thing just reeks of irony. Remember when people were hating on the iPhone because it didn't have Copy/Paste or SMS messaging at one point? Didn't stop them from saying that the device sucked, even though it got the features and implemented them just fine later on.
So, you'll pardon me if I take the time to find the hypocrisy hilarious.
Dude, did you not read my post? There is NO VERSION OF FLASH FOR HONEYCOMB.. end of story. Instead of compiling Flash 10.1 for Honeycomb, Adobe decided to concentrate on 10.2 which is due out shortly anyway.
And your argument on Flash performance is dead on... if you are living in 2009. It simply isn't the case right now. I haven't seen any issues on my EVO. Have you seen how well Flash works on the Android 2.2 tablets? The FACT that you won't own up to is that Adobe fixed a number of the issues you are whining about. I am not a fan of Adobe by any measure, but the did a great job with Flash 10.1
All of that being said, I don't care for the Xoom. I'm not a fan of Motorola in general. #1 they are releasing it about a month too soon #2 they have it overpriced
I fully expect the new crop of Honeycomb tablets that will be released in April/May/June to make the Xoom obsolete in a hurry.
