LMFAO... Lack of an SD card also means no access to mass storage via USB: In other words, your average (novice) user won't be able to side-load content.
android just keeps getting more pathetic as it runs out of ideas to steal from Nokia, RIM, MS, and Apple.
you can always ROOT it as it is a norm for android limitations....just kidding
well flash isnt must have and in the end of the day its a mobile phone not a pc

"Flash doesn't support ICS" might be a case here for getting your facts straight before you shoot off at the mouth.
An inability to use Flash on a mobile phone is Nature's way of telling you that you are trying to do too much with your phone.
ffs Adobe, just make the fricking Flash plugin for mobiles open source and let the community support it and fix sh1te that you couldn't be bothered doing

So you think that web based video can't be watched on iPhones, iPods, iPads or any other devices without Flash installed OR computers using Flash blockers and watching web based video in full screen.
Well they can and have been doing so for years.

A display at 60 Hz refresh rate can only show up to 60 fps, exceeding frames are useless. And a little hint for you, the prowess on the HTML5 test does not depend on the performance of the phone, it depends on how good the HTML5 support is. And now after Adobe does not provide Mobile Flash support anymore for Android, the HTML5 support on Android will soon (I guess) improve.

Be careful Google or you might get sued again for copying another company with your "not bringing flash".
"So, the next major Android version isn't getting official Flash support"
No. It means that NO mobile device will have any further flash support beyond the next player. Amazingly enough.
Even with the "final" revision of flash, the handset will still do more of the internet than something without any flash whatsoever.
Because oddly enough, this handset will still be able to run AIR and HTML 5. It is not an either or scenario.

So, maybe victory isn't the word, but it certainly is vindication.
