First of all, we have to give major credit to 9to5mac.com for breaking the news and putting 2 and 2 together. Reading through the forum discussions over the last few days, the lack of Flash was definitely a disappointed to many. We'll this breaking news might just be enough to turn that frown upside down!
Check out below how the New York times appear on an iPhone without flash.In Apple’s official video the iPad, they show the New York Times being used. Looks pretty nice right? Well, unless the Times has a special iPad version of the site that converts Flash into jpegs or something, THE IPAD HAS FLASH. Normally, we’d say that Apple simply did the renders in the Mac version of Safari and just CG’ed it into the video. However, you can see the page rendering and being resolution independent as well, so it is likely being done on an iPad.
UPDATE: 9to5mac followed up and found out they were hi-res mockup/optimized pages used for the promotional material. Likely NO Flash.
