    Accordingly, Director of Engineerings at Adobe Systems,Paul Betlem confirmed that Adobe is in the works in creating flash player for the IPhone! Adobe is getting close to completeing flash player, however, Apple calls the shots to when it will be released!

    This has actually been known for a while, it's just Apple won't allow it. Since Apple and Adobe are direct media competitors (MPEG vs Flash), that'd be like porting Internet Explorer to the iPhone alongside Safari--bad for Apple. Also, Flash will just drain your battery, and there's really not much good Flash content out there, besides that on YouTube (which has its own native app). Also, it'll probably only be able to play videos, and not games, since the controls needed for games are impossible to implement (mouse-over, etc).

    Is this really a argument? Im pretty sure you will be able to turn off flash. It would also be one of the other many things that drain your battery too. Why not add it too. Atleast it be battery-draining worthey.

    I was just saying, Flash requires a ridiculous amount of power to work correctly, and you know that if it's released, 100,000 new members will join and create 200,000 threads about how their battery life sucks because they've been watching Flash videos (won't go into any more detail than that

    Look up the username "Jarlath". His argument will prove that Flash is no viable or feasible for this device.

    And my arguments will prove that it is not lucrative for this device.

    Thats just a bad excuse. My brother has flash on his N800 and battery life is terrific.
