Thought of changing my 5800 to an android device...Now there is no reason to do so.Flash lite is way better than no flash.

I'm pretty sure the reason they are dropping Flash support is because the default browser that comes with 4.1 is Chrome, which has Flash support built in.

Ok, goodbye Android! Now there is no reason to upgrade my S3 to Android 4.1, and my next phone will definetly be an iPhone or a WP8-phone because the ability to stream HD flash movies was the biggest, if not only, reason why I choose Android and not an iPhone!
