flash... seriously , yeah sure a lot of sites use it, but having friends in the web dev industry, it is a crap code.. that shouldnt be supported.. if you want fancy sites, use CSS!!.. as for usb, card slot and stuff.. having worked for an apple dealer, I doubt Apple is ever going to include them.. it's not a laptop.. and if you want those features.. buy an MacBook..!!

mandyz, 07 Mar 2011why the apple doesn't include the adobe flash ? Also, Adobe themselves today announced a Flash to HTML5 converter, which, to a certain extent at least, shows that they don't want to risk being left behind, as more and more providers shift towards the HTML5 standard.
mandyz, 07 Mar 2011why the apple doesn't include the adobe flash ? the reason apple hasnt added flash is because product sales have proved time and time again that their products dont need it. As apple are trying to push future tech and they class flash as old then y would they support it?

The Wii was quite unanimously the winner of the console wars (which was surprising given its lower specs), before Kinect and Move came out. It also sort of highlighted the principle that "the user experience" as an important part that could place specs as more of a supporting role.
Even Sony and Microsoft acknowledge this, strange that the fans can't. Same with iPhone bashing. Strange that CEO of Nokia has the guts to admit the strength of iPhone, and senior exec of Samsung stating that Galaxy Tab 2 might need tweaking to compete with the iPad 2, yet the anti-Apple herd are totally blind.
My feeling is that, the way to at least provide competition to iPad, is not to compete on specs, but on user experience. I am sorry to say, but Honeycomb is probably not there yet, however, WebOS on the other hand, looks to be very nice and may be the ipad competitor to watch out for.
Why this gadget is in GMSArena? its not a phone right? It's just another brand's product.
GSMArena... please set aside other gadgets not related to Phone Industry.

Some disadvantages spotted out by gsmarena blog
No Flash support for the web browser (didn’t expect anything else)
No stereo speakers
No standard USB port (you can get USB connectivity with an accessory but you need to pay extra)
No standard display port (though you get AirPlay streaming to Apple TV and there’s an optional HDMI adapter)
Only the Wi-Fi+3G version has a GPS receiver
iTunes required for uploading content
No kickstand – it cannot stand on a table without support
No exchangeable battery
micro-SIM, instead of regular SIM for the 3G models (nothing new here, though)
No memory card slot (AGAIN?!)
Still no tethering / personal hotspot support.
