I agree the Galaxy is a strong phone, if I was to ever switch away from Apple (not on my mind at present I must stress) then id choose the Galaxy i9000.
im using a desire and when i go to the m.youtube.com as in video i dont get the same as on iphone isnt it the same layout for all phones?and its soooo slow over 3g why?

For Android, I'd look at the Galax... moreMate I used a desire and didn't like it much at all and I didn't think the Galaxy was all that impressive as the screen accuracy was that good, to big, felt cheap, camera was average and just didn't perform as strong as I expected. The reason why I'd go the Nexus is because your guaranteed the support and upgrades from Google, something your not on the others. That's what I like the most about Apple, you never feel forgotten about.

To be honest, there is rarely an occasion where I go on Safari and wish Flash was available. I go on the BBC site and where I miss out on the video content, I easily make up for it via BBC iPlayer for the iPhone, which uses h.264 and Quicktime. The YouTube App shows such high quality content via Quicktime, I often wonder what the fuss is about having to stream over the phone's browser? I have used a phone with Flash and the quality via streaming is not as good as a conversion made for an App.
Again Flash would not be the worst thing for the iPhone but genuinely I dont miss it as much as I should, purely as I have a laptop which I use for all my main needs and I really dont need Flash sites on my iPhone when im on the go.

Yup, the iOS experience in HTML5 is pathetic. I don't mean rendering pages, I mean all the new stuff HTML5 brings.
iOS can't handle HTML5, even "frash" works better.

Flash does have security issues. It's also the reason why we get those pointless splash pages on websites, plus advertisements that pop up when you move you mouse cursor over them.
There's also the unbeatable Quicktime format that is so much better than Flash video.
Flash has security flaws, however as Adobe has got a grip on so many sites with Flash content, it makes it an essential requirement for a lot of users. What Apple has done is offer other options for streaming via Apps for a number of major sites. It offers the HTML5 and h.264 to offer streaming in excellent quality. TVCatchUP, Veetle and BBC iPlayer are amongst the streaming sites that offer high quality streaming without the use of Flash.. By a massive site like YouTube being HTML5 friendly is another step away from just purely Flash.
I wont lie, Flash would not be a bad thing on the iPhone. However with many Apps covering streaming in other formats, inc Justin.tv, TVU Player, DailyMotion, etc.. Flash is not sorely missed.

Nexus One does somewhat better than iPad for such content, but the same kind of animation/interactivity implemented in Flash works a tonne better on the same Phone. So basically usability of HTML5 on iPad/iPhone is limited to video playback (As an alternative to the flash video container and that too only in one of the HTML5 supported formats) and some light interactivity. Its definitely not anywhere close to the full web experience the way I see it.

What a joke...
...hang on that's an N97, next thing you know Nokia will sue Apple for copying their bar dropping grip.
HTML 5 is a far better standard, however flash is easier to code for amateurs so it will be a while before it's booted. As for performance, Safari, like chrome, is heavily designed for HTML 5 optimisation and work well. To say an iphone doesn't handle it is utter bulldust, works nicely. Why people bash the iphone is beyond me, it's a good product, as is android etc. HTML 5 support is always a good thing as the more pressure there is to change from flash the better. Flash has never been a good product, IE struggles with it even with the most powerful hardware, as does Mozilla, Chrome and Safari, so I was happy when YouTube offered HTML 5 online, now they've done it for mobiles... Just for everyone else now.

Android has both Flash and HTML5 support while iOS has only HTML5 and its almost unusable if its anything more than the most basic interactivity.

Since the iPhone supports HTML5, it works.
The iPhone is not the only phone that supports HTML5.
