    Seriously? O.M.G.


    I hope this is right ~ he is gonna say..."No No, it is a trial run" Or something like that! Or he was right about it not costing $1200.

    Yeah, seems like more bad planning for a major launch. People should look at the Xoom launch as how to NOT bring a major product to market.

    That being said, unlike with the iPad you can still easily install Flash on the Xoom if you wish to, but the first officially supported version for Android 3.0 will be Flash 10.2 which Adobe has not released for Android yet.

    To the rabid Flash addicts, it will not matter, nor to the Android fanboys. It does not matter what the facts are, they only hear what they want.

    So you don't think he will believe it? Why do you think there ended up not having flash?

    Adobe has not released Flash 10.2 for Android 3.0 yet. There isn't much Motorola can do at this point unless they want to delay the launch.

    It's very misleading article when xoom comes out you do get flash 10.1 witch is the same as on android phone what they will not get until later is the 10.2 optimized for mobile platform, there will be flash just not the one they are working now at this moment to make the experience that much better.

    You are such a troll. Its ridiculous. You have pushed every wrong rumor that there has been about the Xoom and Android in general. Is that a valid roll for a moderator?? I get that you are the epitome of what an Apple fanboy is, and there is nothing wrong with that on an Apple forum, but don't you get tired of being wrong so often? They are talking about flash 10.2 which is optimized for tablets. Flash 10.1 will work perfectly fine and will be available DAY 1 to install on the Xoom.

    Actually, if you look at the PC World article and then go to Verizon's website as is hyperlinked yes, it does say in fine print in the bottom, that Adobe Flash IN GENERAL will be available in Spring 2011. I would think that means NOT on launch day of 2/24. Otherwise, why would they bother to say Spring 2011? Why wouldn't they clarify that the user could install such and such version instead until then? So it sounds indicative of a delay.

    Probably because I don't push inaccurate information every chance I get. And yes he can ban me. Its a forum, not life and death. If I get banned for pointing out the truth, which is EXACTLY what I did, then so be it. Its funny that when I call him out for trolling, which I have done in the past, no one EVER says that he isn't trolling, but rather that he could ban me for pointing it out. I don't think mods should be trolling EVER, and certainly not every chance they get. If the mods feel differently about a mod trolling every single Android related article and ban me, then I probably wouldn't want to be a part of the forum anyways.

    I read further on the issue. This is the issue. The official 10.1 in the market does not support the Tegra 2 chip that is in the Xoom. The 10.2 update WILL support these SoC's, but that doesn't come until Spring 2011. There are versions of 10.1 that DO support the Tegra 2 SoC online, like here:

    Potential Motorola XOOM Owners, Here is a Tegra 2 Flash 10.1 File to Try - Droid Life: A Droid Community Blog

    So if you want flash, all you would have to do is install that file and you got it until the 10.2 update is released by Adobe.

    The only reason I suggested that you could install Flash 10.1 is because that's what the testers that were running the pre-release models said they were doing. I'm sure the reason the Xoom comes without flash installed is because Adobe doesn't want a version that isn't best for the device to come installed on the device. I would bet that an older version of Flash not made for this version of Android is going to have some issues which would make Adobe look bad.
