    Comex has made a working port of the Android flash runtime player for the iPad. They call it Frash and it is still in the development stage.

    It will only work on a Jailbroken iPad so they can't!

    The real question is how many owners will be willing to Jailbreak to have it.

    I would be, it's the first good reason that I have found to JB. Still waiting for my IPad though!

    definitely willing to JB if it means Flash... (probably will anyways, perhaps after 4.0)...

    Yes. For me, lack of Flash support is the biggest flaw with the iPad.

    To try it you have to get the android flash lib and compile it yourself.

    I don't see why people want to have their iPad run slower and loose battery life as well as open their device up to possible virus attack just for flash.



    It's like people now really want it only because the iPad doesn't have it.

    I'm still on the fence, don't know if I want too or not. I was hoping HTML5 would take off with popularity but that's not happening yet.

    Delivery date is indicated for the 15th of July, no word from Apple yet. Either way, I'll only get my hands on it on the 20th when I arrive in the states for a vacation.
