Steve proven right:
ZDNet is reporting that Adobe has announced to its partners that the company has discontinued development on Flash Player for mobile browsers. The news comes roughly a year and a half after the publication of Steve Jobs' "Thoughts on Flash" open letter, laying out his thoughts on the use of Flash in mobile devices and explaining why Apple would not support Flash on their mobile devices.
cng, 09 Nov 2011think iphone lovers are dillusional html 5 android will get it! Lol under no delusion, HTML5 was on Android from the beginning, we knew that. It is however funny how many Android fanboys were saying HTML5 was crap, words which they now have to eat.
It is also interesting to note how they will also now celebrate better battery life, what Apple has basically been saying all along.
In tech, one wants to follow innovation, and if Android continues to play catch up all the time, they will lose customers, as they already are now, to WP7 in large numbers.
Stunned silence reported worldwide from Android fanboys, as Adobe announce stopping of Flash for mobiles.
Awaiting complete u-turn as Android SUDDENLY support HTML5 and admit to have done so from before. Lol
Steve Jobs and Apple proven right! Adobe abandons Flash for mobile. As I had predicted, it was only a matter of time before Android handsets would also not use Flash.

My year old HTC can do all t... moreIf its purely from tech specs, then enjoy your HTC, and your soon to be newer Android. Most people buy iPhones for additional reasons than purely tech specs. There are good sides to both, tho I hear loads of Android users are now shifting to WP7.

My year old HTC can do all this, soon enough ill get a newer Android phone with heaps better specs. IPhone has nothing new or better to offer. The only good thing is their range of apps.

In the same article, analysts forecast iPhone sales of 104.4 million units.
iPhone 4S still running out at most retailers, this despite Apple producing a huge amount in anticipation of strong demand.
Interestingly demand is also high for iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS.

In my opinion, in 2012, iPhone market share will remain roughly similar, maybe some slight growth, but the meteoric market share increase will be from WP7 which will be at Android's expense. Do not underestimate the strength of Nokia's loyal following, which had no real alternative previously to Android and iOS.
Samsung is already realizing this and now started showcasing its WP7 line. All the others were basically playing wait and see and now Nokia has shown them that real interest and demand is there.
Open your eyes and free yourself from the cage. Tech is tech, and not bound by any brand. Enjoy what works best for you, iOS, WP7 or Android.
Deep down, we all know this is currently the best overall phone on the market...lets be honest...its flawless
Microsoft had a chance to study both iOS and Android before revamping their WP7. Why do you think they chose to go more along iOS's philosophy and integrated approach?
You should look over your shoulder, as it is my opinion that iPhone will continue along it's course in a steady fashion. However, WP7 is on the verge of taking massive market share away from Android. I myself am thinking of switching to WP7 for my second phone.
[deleted post]The edge is according to your eyes. A guy who values fuel saving will never appreciate a supercar, while a guy who values speed will never be happy with a family van.
iPhone is loved by many, for it's combination of tech, performance and user interface with the beautiful OS that is iOS.
[deleted post]Ah, it seems the frustration is starting to set in. Flash is unfortunately a non-issue now. If it was, it would have resulted in massive herds of people abandoning iPhone. Yet here we are, 4 years on, yet do you hear people screaming for Flash?
If it was absolutely crucial to the user, he can choose Android. No one forced anyone to buy iPhone, yet millions still do.
i-what?, 08 Nov 2011ok fair comment, but I still not seeing a massive difference to be a deal breaker, as andriod ... moreThe point is, the deal breaker comes in what you want it to do. Most smartphones today probably do 90% of what other smartphones do, so you'll be fine either way. What I have highlighted below here is what makes iPhone stand out. There are things that make Android or WP7 phones stand out too.
For example, a guy wanting to play music on his phone with his guitar, GarageBand, Amplitube are just completely deal readers making the iPhone the choice no? You seem to always avoid the answers, and keep asking the same question, I have given you more than enough answers. Maybe you are so trapped in your anti-iPhone cage, that you can't see what's in front of you.
Same with Android phones themselves, there are different models and different features. If SGS2 was the absolute best, why do people still buy Motorola, or HTC or even SE with single core? Use your brain. There are many factors that go into choosing a mobile phone.
Open your mind, and escape the cage that you are in, don't keep going in circles until you turn blue. The answers are here in front of you.
